Legendary Texas oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens is suing Ontario for $700 million over wind power

T. Boone Pickens made billions drilling for oil and gas and squaring off in bare-knuckled corporate takeover bouts.

Now the 87-year-old tycoon is embroiled in what may be the last big battle of his career. Only this one is aimed thousands of miles north of his Texas home.

And it is over wind power.

    Know how corrupt the Ontario Liberals are I wouldn’t be surprised if many received sizeable bribes before the contract was awarded.

    everything , every move , every breath this psychotic government makes is a disaster.
    they are the definition of insanity

    • BradThomas

      Actually, I’d say they’re more the definition of corruption: they truly are incompetent dolts, of course, but all they are also fully aware of what they’re doing as they shaft us and tax us to death, laughing and smirking all the while.

    He must be homophobic. But who cares, we don’t worry about money matters in Ontario. Besides, Wynne’s little puppet in Ottawa will be pouring billions into Ontario from other provinces when he becomes PM.

    This is why corrupt countries are poor.
    They traded an $18,000 campaign contribution for a risk of 700,000,000 in public funds.
    They don’t care.
    They get to keep the $18,000 and if the municipality looses hundreds of millions in the process, then ‘oh well’.
    This is how Mexico and third-world nations of all stripes operate.

      How much did Obama sell his opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline for?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I’m not saying that does not go on down here too, it’s just a very bad thing when it happens.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Gee, I missed all those Black Democrat Mayors and District Attorneys, too.
          Somehow New Orleans was all Booshs fault but later on we find out it was Ray Nagin.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            The odds of black Democrat politicians being corrupt is about 9-1 it seems.

    • David Murrell

      Good pints dbn. And to think the $18,000 kickback money by NewEra will never be discussed by the dominant media cartel.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I think I will order a T-Boone steak.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Well, that really gets up my noose.
      Is there any boze?

  • Too late. Wynne has bled us dry.
