Naclor is going to get rate increases as a result of increasing costs, period. People should not say, oh well it is only 1 % because it is not. Say I got a bill for $100 and nalcor gets an increase of 7%, well it is $107 now, correct? Well put 8% on that and it equals $115.56 so even with the rate increase, whatever it ends up being (and it is inevitable), the savings are $8.56. What is wrong with that? Rate increases are completly independent og the reduction of hst on heating bills.

Great, government is giving us an 8% discount on home heating...too bad Nalcor is increasing their rates by 7%...I guess 1% is better than nothing

If Mr Matthews gets the power and oil companies to agree with mass building to the government, the government should at least, force them to put the actual cost on the bill that are sent out. Otherwise the general public has no way of confirming that they are getting the rebate. Thegovernment could then send cheques to those paying the bill semi annually. It would not be difficult at all for the power provider to the info to the government and could probably even send it to them in a format that could be used directly to print the cheques.
