With many more to come, so, bend over and get ready for the PUC to jack your monthly bill again.
They've proven that they can't manage money responsibly, we all know who suffers for that.
If it's not power increases, it's water, ridiculous.

I know people who work at puc and at Algoma power, I think they have free power and water, its kinda unfair, but I guess since I didn't apply for one of those jobs its all my fault, I wish I worked there to find out if my bull was true

I have been wondering when they will get around to stopping the river that runs down Great Northern Rd. near the hospital entrance. That one has been running for a couple of weeks now.

MISTER P.Do you TRULY believe that PUC employees are getting free water and power/ That is ridiculous beyond words.

They may not get free as noted but trust me, there's perks. Just as Shaw cable employees, stock options/shares & $100.00 flat rate for unlimited services for which they offer.

"I wish I worked there to find out if my bull was true"

you have just proven that people on this site only read what they want to see. reminds me of a term they say about women, they only hear what they want. too much fun, entertainment doesn't cost much around here. if you live in a box you don't need blinders, remove one from your life and maybe this city can be a better place to live.

Mister p ... So, using your logic, people who work at banks get free money, right?

I figure the PUC has alot of bad pipes in the sewers.this is the pic I see u have a car right its rusty on the outside and its falling apart so u dont fix the outside of it or the mechanical parts of it but inside u have a 5 thousand dollar stereo leather seats all nice stuff inside but thats not going to help u when the body and the mechanical parts go on u.One brand new building right old outdated sewer water mains that are old do u see the comparison I am making.

Water and sewer are two totally different things, ran by totally different companies. PUC usually leaves the real crappy patch jobs when they are finished.
