Billion-dollar boondoggle

There’s a $1.14 billion annual gap — to be paid for by the people of Ontario — in Premier Wynne’s cap-and-trade scheme

Today let’s ask Premier Kathleen Wynne and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray a simple question.

If, as they say, the cost of their cap-and-trade scheme to the average Ontario household is only $156 per year, where are they going to get the additional $1.14 billion a year they say it will raise for the government?

If you voted for Kathleen Wynne you are every bit the criminal she is.

    We need recall legislation.

    • And we’ll never get it, the Public Service Unions and all the other rent seekers run this province. They are a monster the Liberal government created to ensure they retain power.

      That monster may turn on the Liberals one day but whoever is elected will be beholden to them so nothing will change, Liberal, Conservative, NDP are all the same.

        This is why the recent lower unemployment rate is because of massive hiring in the public sector, according to stats Canada.

    So taxpayers give California 3 billion dollars in order to fight global warming and meanwhile rural hospitals are falling apart. Makes perfect sense I guess.

    • Oh yea, that money will grease a lot of palms.

      Hospitals don’t need money now that Wynne is setting up death panels to kill off costly patients

    …too many people paid off, so’s not to give a shit about all this…

    • We really do live in a kleptocracy.

      Only until the money runs out will people wake up to the criminality of this government and all Liberal governments.

    How quickly we forget the lessons of Greece. If you are no longer in the workforce and have no chance of getting back into it, here is my suggestion for a survival plan:

    *get a good mattress (or equivalent)
    *do not leave savings or surplus $$ in a bank account — convert to gold and silver in legal tender forms. At the moment, 1 ounce silver Maple Leafs (high quality) can be purchased for under $30 CDN). Gold Maple Leafs can be purchased in denominations as small as 1/20 of an ounce (very affordable).
    I suggest small amounts because when the sh*** hits the fan (and it will) you will need these converted savings to pay for groceries, etc.

    • Cat-astrophe

      We will be experiencing the Greek model of collapse soon.

    Wynne is doing a good job of redistributing our unsustainable middle class wealth to those needy people in third world governments. During it’s journey, the money has stop overs at the provincial legislature, Ottawa, New York, AND MORE!!
    But just like the Colorado river, it never reaches the sea.

    Here’s why Madame Premier hates Natural Gas so much…the writing is on the wall. Ontario Hydro is going to go tit’s up.
