CORRECTION FROM SOURCE/Media Advisory: Release of legal opinion on proposed Hydro One sale

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 14, 2015) -

This document corrects and replaces the media advisory that was sent today at 12:18 PM EDT. The error occurred in the WHEN section where it should have read "WHEN: 9:45 a.m., Wednesday, April 15". The complete and corrected version follows.

Wednesday morning at Queen's Park, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario will release a legal opinion from Steven Shrybman, a partner at Sack Goldblatt Mitchell, on the provincial government's plans to sell a stake in Hydro One.

CUPE requested the opinion because of concerns over the legality of government plans to sell all or part of the publicly owned electrical transmission and distribution system.

In 2002, Shrybman led a successful court challenge that effectively stopped cold plans by P.C. Premier Ernie Eves to sell off Hydro One.

WHO: Fred Hahn, President, CUPE Ontario and Steven Shrybman, Partner, Sack Goldblatt Mitchell

WHAT: Release of legal opinion on Hydro One sale

WHERE: Queen's Park Media Studio

WHEN: 9:45 a.m., Wednesday, April 15
