Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne was booed during the International Plowing Match in Minto, Ont., after speaking about her government’s efforts to lower rising hydro rates across the province.
In Wynne’s speech during the opening ceremonies Tuesday, she mentioned her government’s work to reduce hydro rates and was met with boos from the crowd and a woman who shouted, “Liar!”
“It’s very important that we understand that things like electricity costs — and we are working to bring those electricity costs down …” Wynne said, before she was interrupted by the crowd member and a smattering of boos and applause.
“I know, I know. I hear a mixed response to that.”
