Wynne Defends Failed “Green” Programs

Of course she does:

Premier Kathleen Wynne defended the billions of dollars in extra costs that Ontario electricity customers must fork out for the Liberal government’s green energy initiatives Thursday, saying there’s a cost for cleaner air.

Auditor general Bonnie Lysyk’s annual report said consumers are paying $9.2 billion more for 20-year wind and solar power contracts signed by the Liberals with private generators than they would have under the old procurement system.

The auditor also found Ontario pays 3 1/2 times the price for solar power than the average in the U.S., and twice as much for wind power.

“There’s a cost associated with getting out of coal, of putting more renewables in place, and we’ve got other jurisdictions looking to Ontario as a model for how to do that,” said Wynne. “I’m happy to defend the changes that we’ve made.”

    Talk about a red hearing. It’s like saying I spent $50 for a tube of toothpaste and a toothbrush. And look my kid has no cavities. I could have done the same thing for $5. The woman is so full of **it, her brain has drowned in it.

      You forget to mention all the employment and wealth it created in Ontario.

      There are a lot of Liberal hacks who made or are making undeserved wealth off of these programs and green energy subsidies.

      Why the media does not, for example, examine the companies of the former president of the Liberal Party of Canada owned or has major share holdings in, I don’t understand.

        So that is why them call them “Green” programs!

        Mike Crawley, a private businessman who started his own renewable power generation company, defeated three other contenders at the party’s biennial convention, including former cabinet minister Sheila Copps, who was considered the favourite.

      • Ho Hum

        I agree the media have been asleep or are willfully overlooking these dubious deals.

        How many Liberal insiders like Mike Crawley are there out there? Crawley – a Liberal hack was awarded a $475 Million wind energy contract despite have ZERO experience in the power generation field.


        Former PC energy critic – Bob Runciman (who raised alarms bells over ten years ago) has called for inquiry in the Greed Energy contracts. According to this recent article Kathleen Wynne has doubled down on the madness and is still awarding lucrative contracts for renewable energy we don’t need. Who are the Liberal insiders getting these lucrative contracts? Wynne’s brother-in-law has been a director on at least two renewable energy companies that I know of. Is he getting his pockets lined?

    I think most politicians are so stupid they don’t even know how to count. I think numbers are an abstract concept to them. I would bet money that if you asked Wynne how many millions there are in a billion she couldn’t tell you.

      If Nina Simone was still alive she would be writing Canada Goddamn, but it is clear in spite of claiming to be a Catholic that Justin doesn’t believe in God, and Kathleen Wynne sure doesn’t.

        Catholics do not bow to the stone idol in Mecca. It’s a deadly sin! …but Muslims do bow to it. As far as Muslims are concerned, bowing to Mecca makes him a Muslim.

    We knew in the 1980s what the economics of solar and wind would be. Wind doesn’t blow all the time. The sun is gone for half the year. The result of not building enough reactors is that most countries are burning expensive oil and gas for electricity generation. WORST OF ALL, Soddy Barbaria has benefitted from the BIGGEST WEALTH TRANSFER IN HISTORY which has allowed them to export terrorism to every continent via their VIOLENT, VICIOUS, PRIMITIVE WAHHABIST IDEOLOGY.
    Stop paying the Soddy assassins.

    Wynne is a crook and has escaped prison by paying off the OPP.
