Londoners opposed to the sale of Hydro One will gather at the Covent Garden Market on Friday night.
The government’s plan to sell off Hydro One and rising hydro bills will be the focus of a rally at 6p.m. that will feature Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath.
The NDP leader will spend most of her day in London on Friday.
It will start at 10a.m. when she meets with London resident Alex Moore to talk about his hydro bill.
Local NDP MPP’s Peggy Sattler and Teresa Armstrong will join Horwath in a ‘Social Exchange’, coffee and conversation event at YOU Made it Café on Richmond Street at 11:45a.m.
Horwath’s day in London will end with the downtown rally, being organized by the group ‘Hydro One Not For Sale,’ at 6p.m.
Sattler and Armstrong are also scheduled to speak at the event.
After they speak, the group will connect a series of extension cords and parade through the downtown holding the extension cords.
Organizers hope to set a world record for the longest extension cord.
