The following questions are abundantly obvious:
1. When is the OEB going to rescind EB-2007-0050?
2. How many violations need to be reported to the OEB before it is
going to enforce its own ruling EB-2007-0050!
3. HONI is still working in the field on the Bruce to Milton
Reinforcement Project, in spite of the fact that HONI does not have
all the approvals to proceed, why is this?
4. HONI still is flaunting the OEB Ruling EB-2007-0050 with
continuing to spend resources on an unapproved project Bruce to
Milton Reinforcement Project right in the OEB􀀂s face and the OEB
refuses to do a thing, why?
5. Has the OEB received written instructions that HONI exempt from
the laws of Ontario? If so please provide copies!
6. HONI contractors are still in the field on October 12, 2010 in spite of
violations being reported to the OEB in September and recorded in
OEB hearings for EB-2010-0023 in July, why is this happening?
7. Who behind the scenes is authorizing and telling HONI to proceed
and disobey the law and all the landowners effected by the Bruce to
Milton Reinforcement Project that HONI has hurt in the last 3􀀁
8. Who behind the scenes is authorizing and telling the OEB to not
enforce ruling EB-2007-0050? What documentations do you have
to justify the OEB current position?
9. Why is a contractor of J.D. Barnes working in the Niagara
Escarpment on October 12th, 2010 when HONI does not have a
Development Permit?
10.Obviously, J.D. Barnes has a contract with HONI in place for
services since they do not work for free!
11.The OEB has been provided with documentation of construction of
tower footings, roads, etc. in Milton and the OEB has not acted,
12.The OEB has been provided with documentation of construction of
construction activities within the Niagara Escarpment and in
Limehouse and the OEB has not acted, why?
13.The OEB has been provided with a sworn affidavit by Mr. Robert
Watson of the construction of activities at the July 14th, 2010 OEB
hearing EB-2010-0023. The OEB has not acted, why?
14.How many more violations have to be documented before the
OEB stands up and does it job?
15.When is the OEB going to rescind EB-2007-0050?

16.Is the OEB, after 50 years, turned into a useless and expensive
bureaucratic elephant? Is it time to put it out of its misery since they
are not fulfilling its mandate to protect the Hydro Rate Payers of this
The OEB has failed to protect the Hydro Rate Payer of this Province which
is it mandate.
The question then must be raised - What is the purpose of the OEB if
companies such as HONI can just ignore the OEB rulings and proceed
with impunity?
Is the OEB just another layer of bureaucracy that we do not need?
Who is running the show at the OEB - the energy industry that the OEB is
mandated regulate, or has lost its independence as a body is now servant
to the political masters in Queen􀀁s Park who are running the show?
The OEB has had evidence of violations for over three months (since July
14th, 2007 and has shown a total unwillingness to enforce EB-2070-0050.
Even with additional evidence been provided in September and the OEB􀀁s
apparent policy of non-enforcement, it clearly shows that the OEB no
longer can function as an independent body!
You have brought this upon yourself.
Yours truly,
the public
