Kleptocracy Alert: Ontario’s climate change plan keeps natural gas, but offers home and car incentives

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne released details this morning about her government’s controversial plan to combat climate change and cut greenhouse gases, saying the plan will not outlaw the use of natural gas, a staple in home heating.

Get ready to get poorer.

    Great, I just love paying higher taxes so rich people can get discounts on their Teslas.

  • Uncommunist

    Sure … more taxpayer corn subsidies for more Ethanol in fuel. Great for newer vehicles with more efficient engines, Not. In fact, for some 10 % ethanol will void new vehicle warranties after destroying the engines.

      Good news for Wynne’s buddies who ran the games. They get to keep the 5 million dollars in bonuses, even though they were over budget.

    I did a quick skim through their upcoming plans, https://www.ontario.ca/page/climate-change-action-plan

    we have awesome things like :

    Showcase Ontario’s clean-tech expertise: Public
    properties and buildings will be used to help demonstrate low-carbon
    technologies, and to showcase made-in-Ontario innovations and the
    expertise of Ontario’s clean-tech companies.

    Create a Global Centre for Low Carbon Mobility:
    Based at a post-secondary institution in Ontario, a Global Centre for
    Low Carbon Mobility will be set up to advise the government on
    low-carbon transportation, and to direct funding for research,
    development and low-carbon manufacturing.
    $100,000,000 to $140,000,000

    Collaborate with Indigenous communities
    $85,000,000 to $96,000,000

    Establish a Challenge Fund: The government will establish a greenhouse gas pollution reduction challenge fund or program.
    $250,000,000 to $300,000,000

    Establish low-carbon content for natural gas:
    Ontario will introduce a renewable content requirement for natural gas
    and provide supports to encourage the use of cleaner, renewable natural
    gas in industrial, transportation and buildings sectors.
    $60,000,000 to $100,000,000

    Boost low-carbon technology in homes: Ontario will
    help homeowners purchase and install low-carbon energy technologies
    such as geothermal heat pumps and air-source heat pumps, solar thermal
    and solar energy generation systems that reduce reliance on fossil fuels
    for space and water heating.
    $500,000,000 to $600,000,000

    Showcase low-carbon technologies: Ontario’s
    heritage properties are excellent platforms to showcase low-carbon
    technology to the public.
    $40,000,000 to $80,000,000

    Retrofit social housing apartments: Most of Ontario’s social housing
    towers were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s and can use up to 25 per
    cent more energy per square metre than a house.
    $380,000,000 to $500,000,000

    That’s 1.5 Billion in slush funds that will of course be directed to “approved” contractors.

    Add to that their planned regulations preventing landlords from passing the costs of the required upgrades on to their tenants and you’ll see that once again the government will do something that is foreseeable to reduce the availability of rental properties.

      I feel poorer already.

    Wynne and feminist Trudeau are going to be at the announcement of new engineering jobs at GM in Oshawa Friday. I wonder how many millions of taxpayers dollars are going to be wasted on that scam, since the new jobs are supposed to be about green tech. car development.

    …Kooki Suzuki now wanking for her latest rape

    • ontario john

      That government ad with Suzuki should be reported for child abuse. He scared the shit out of those poor kids.

      • mauser 98

        Suzuki should be in jail for defrauding the taxpayer with his partisan wanking
        he owns 5 houses
