This blog calls for the Ontario government and law enforcement to end the ESA's monopoly, cut fees across the board.

Limit its absolute power. Investigate and stop the alleged criminal abuse of that power and self-enrichment.

Expose fundamental flaws that deteriorate safety causing more accidents, fires and fatalities.
It looks like there are grounds to suggest that the preceding and/or the following could be true.

End Electrical Safety Authority monopoly. End ESA abuse of power


Even if the ESA is a non-profit private corporation it looks like a Crown corporation, walks like a Crown corporation and acts like a Crown corporation. It's a monopoly!

No one is pushing to increase productivity, reduce expenses, and improve profitability. And no cost cutting measures need to be implemented.

There is no need to lower monthly bills, offer more and better services, expand hours of service, etc. Why think, work hard and compete when you don't have to?

Monopoly eliminates the need for outsourcing, subcontracting out, restructuring, downsizing, optimizing. Monopoly stops progress and prohibits excellence!

Absence of competition and excessive power breed abuse of power. Absolute power leads to absolute abuse of power.

Development, creativity, efficiency and innovation are all replaced with one thing - the constant and steady increase of fees and charges!

Powerless and defenseless electrical workers with no freedom to choose are chained to the Electrical Safety Authority and have no alternative but to pay whatever ESA orders them to.


All monopolists make major efforts to convince that their existence is actually beneficial. ESA uses public safety as their most powerful and irresistible trump card. No one can say a word against the ESA, it would be interpreted as being against the public safety!

Do you think that ESA is the best and pure example of the monopolistic and parasitic abuse of power?

The ESA should earn their income and pay for their expenses the same way as other corporations do. Free market must rule this field of business, as any other.

Eliminate ESA monopoly. Split the ESA into three or four smaller companies and privatize. So that they compete for business, cut fat, stop the abuse, fight inefficiencies.

The end of ESA monopoly would allow a few other contenders to enter the field and introduce the competitiveness, reduce fees, and fix all current ESA's sins.



Email the ESA, tell them to lower fees and to end its monopoly ESA.Cambridge@electricalsafety.on.ca

Tell your MPP.

Email the mister directly Ms. Tracy MacCharles. Or visit web site of the Minister of Government and Consumer Services, which is accountable for the ESA activities.

Or do you have your own story of abuse, neglect, unfair treatment, overcharge, etc. to share publicly? Join us in a class action if you think they are parasites and sue them together with us!


When a bunch of abused folks speaks out, nothing happens.

If there are hundred or thousand of us, we will prevail and restore the common sense and fairness!

Your voice is an extremely powerful tool. But only if it is used and heard.

So, do you think we should collect signatures and petition the ESA?

Or should we hold a referendum and simply order ESA to do what is right?

ESA will never give up high salaries and huge benefits untill we refuse to be their cash cows. They will milk us all to death if YOU & I don't fight them in court. So how committed are you to winning?
