BRAMPTON: Premier Kathleen Wynne faced some tough questions during her town-hall meeting with residents of Brampton on Wednesday. Over 250 attendees listened to the Premier as she was questioned about the lack of civic utilities in the city. When Dr Parminder Singh asked her about the proposed new university in Brampton, she said it is a done deal. Community activist Jotvinder Sodhi asked the Premier that Brampton, with a population of almost 600,000, should have two full-fledged hospitals.
The Premier responded by saying that the additions were being made at Peel Memorial Hospital. But people told her that it was not a full-fledged hospital, Wynne said her government was working on the problem. When she was asked about the high hydro rates, the Premier again said her government is trying to reduce the burden on people. When some angry residents brought to her notice the high Auto Insurance Rates, the premier said the government was working with insurance companies and claimed that rates have come down up to six percent in some cases.
When the audience protested that the rates haven’t come down at all, the Premier tried to wriggle out of the situation by repeating that her government will work with insurance companies on it. It was also brought to Wynne’s notice that in Brampton auto insurance rates were set on the basis of the postal code and it was an unfair practice, the Premier promised to look into it.
