NB POWER NEEDS TO STOP!!
For many of us here in New Brunswick, Canada NB Power has been the only service for electricity offered and available to us.
We the majority of people in NB live paycheque to paycheque and try desperately every month to make ends meet, many times having to pick between rent, power or food. NB Power has continued to hike up rheir rates despite NB being one of those lowest paid provincies in the country.
We believe it is time that NB Power step back and realize that it is unlawful to disconnect power when people are trying to pay their bills.
We propose new rules for NB Power:
1) As long as a meaningful attempt is being made to pay the bill that NB Power not be allowed to disconnect any household that has children or elderly living in it .
2) That NB Power should have a rate freeze in place for the next 5 years.
3) That NB Power should have to take into consideration the monthly income of each household in the province when it comes to bill assessment.
IT SHOULD NEVER BE LEGAL TO THREATEN PEOPLE WITH THE ONE THING THEY NEED IF THEY CANT GIVE YOU THE MONEY YOU ARE DEMANDING!!!
