Wynne, McGuinty green energy fiasco has left Ontarians drowning in red ink

Today, let’s examine how much the Kathleen Wynne and Dalton McGuinty governments have cost Ontarians with their reckless pursuit of expensive, unreliable and unneeded green energy.

Last week, Tory MPP Vic Fedeli accused the Liberals of wasting $1.5 billion by not walking away in 2013 from their disastrous 2010 green energy deal with South Korea’s Samsung corporation.

A spokesman for Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli countered the government saved taxpayers $3.7 billion by renegotiating the deal, adding, “we’ve built a strong track record in renewable energy.”

This boast is nonsense.

    When companies are shutting down or moving because of high energy prices something has got to give.

    Reminds me of the MBA wiz kid from Harvard our mayor David Miller that cost the taxpayers $35,000,000.00 in a lawsuit to NOT build a a $20million dolalr Bridge to the islan airport .
    Time for these treasonous weasels to start going to jail after a really good public flogging to set an example so people like McGuilty and Wynne would never be allowed to get away with their crimes .

    Every time the SUN does an article on the Liberals Green Energy programs (which is about twice a month) it is from the standpoint that the Liberals are incompetent or too idealistic. Lorrie Goldstein seems oblivious to the fact that these Liberal Green Energy programs are nothing but elaborate ILLEGAL SCAMS designed to bilk Billions from Ontario residents.

    Liberal party insiders have become very wealthy from these scams including a former Liberal Party president who was awarded a lucrative $450 Million renewable energy contract despite the fact he had ZERO experience in the Power industry.

    In order to keep the scams going the corrupt Liberals are planning to ban natural gas heating in future homes so as to promote the usage of more electricity. It is pure insanity! Unfortunately our media is either too stupid or too afraid to report on what is really behind these Green (greed) energy programs.

      The article is a bit repetitive.

        Yes Lorrie has written countless articles like this. They are all the same…”the Liberals are spendaholics bla bla bla”…”The Liberals are incompetent bla bla bla” NEVER has he written the TRUTH …that the Liberals are CORRUPT and are ROBBING the people of Ontario blind. Lorrie Goldstein is completely useless. I don’t know if Goldstein is actually this stupid or if he is a closet Liberal. Postmedia should put him out to pasture for good.

    The Sun lost a very expensive lawsuit many years ago when things were a lot more free and easy and a reporter pulled a fast one on them. Never got its really tough edge back after that.
    Today it must be lawyers okaying everything iffy before public release or the writer is on his own.
    Still leaves the interesting question hanging: Why would GLLKDW&Co be so “helpful” when it came to letting Samsung off the hook ?
