A former Progressive Conservative MPP is calling out his old party for not fulfilling a 2018 election promise to cut electricity prices 12 per cent.

Premier Doug Ford's government should be directing the board of Hydro One — of which the province is the largest shareholder — to forego applications for rate increases, independent MPP Randy Hillier said Wednesday.

"Why are you allowing Hydro One to act in a manner that both frustrates and obstructs your mandate and makes a mockery of your commitment?" Hillier (Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston) asked Energy Minister Greg Rickford in the legislature's daily question period.
