Did Some Media Fall For Kinew’s Spin on Hydro - asks Marty Gold.

Wednesday, August 2, 2023 - Last Friday, CTV Winnipeg covered an announcement by Manitoba Hydro, claiming that the public utility was “looking for ways to encourage people to shift electricity use away from peak hours (including) using smart meters to charge people higher rates at peak times.” But while CTV parroted Wab Kinew’s line of attack on the Tories, another newsroom actually looked at the Hydro plan. As Marty Gold explains, CBC News confronted Kinew - because the Hydro plan says nothing about surge pricing.
