Thankfully, the Ontario government wasted no time in stating that it will seek to

overturn this decision. Energy Minister Todd Smith didn’t even wait for a full day

before declaring that he would be looking to introduce legislation to reverse the

OEB decision as soon as possible. Smith said this decision would have the effect

of discouraging badly-needed new home construction, especially regarding affordable

housing. The decision would also discourage developers from using natural gas,

one of the most efficient and cost-effective energy sources, in new housing

developments. Enbridge also stated its intention to challenge the decision.
