Utilities keep going up...wages stay the same...?

Posted on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 2:10 PM

I read in the paper today there is a proposed 40% increase for the water commission. This comes shortly after a proposed increase of 12% from Nova Scotia Power Corp. Thankfully the utility review board only gave them 6.5 percent.

Taxes have gone up again, making everyday small purchases harder on the wallet. I'm not sure where the province thinks we can afford these costly utilities... We certainly aren't making more money to afford them.

How are we going to hurdle this recession if costs for necessities wont stop rising! I can't imagine the people making minimum wages, how are they getting by? —Strapped for cash
