Interesting you call your power "hydro" - here we'd have to call it "gas" or "coal".
I've lived in 3 Canadian provinces and most of our electricity came from a water source. In Canada has expanded to refer to all electricity regardless of the source. Canada is rich in water suppy and much of that enenrgy from water is used to create energy.
Gas and oil are also used but oil is never used (at least where I have lived) to power lights. Gas stoves, ovens, dryers and heat are available so if a person has gas appliances they may be on a gas bill buut the lights and electrical sockets are all water based power.
But I'd love to be able to call it "nuke", if only to get hippies like UncleBruce hyperventilating.
Ontario is a nuclear province and has has nuclear energy for at least 40 years. But the bill for this would go on a hydro-electric bill and not gas or oil.
What's the deal with public transport for pensioners in your neck of the woods?They pay half fare. Many of our cily buses have the ability to "kneel". The front of the bus can be lowered a few inchhes to assist people onto and off of the bus. For those of us who are in wheelchairs or use walkers the bus can kneel and open a ramp (lower the front of the bus andunfold a ramp) to allow us to roll onto the bus. If the person is in a wheelchair there are seats that flip up and provide a parking spot for the chair. It's really great although in the winter the ramps sometimes freeze and I have to wait for the next bus
