Now that manufacturing has been gutted… Cash-strapped Ontario gov’t cancels future green energy plans

TORONTO – The Ontario government says it is blowing away green energy plans in a bid to save almost $4 billion.

The province’s energy ministry said Tuesday it is cancelling plans to sign contracts for up to 1,000 megawatts of power from solar, wind and other renewable energy sources to help keep rates down for consumers.

    Liberals stopping spending? Cancelling contracts? Things must be worse than we can imagine. Love the spin that Thibault put on it, though.

      Maybe someone explained arithmetic to them.

    You can tell when this crazy bitch is getting ready for the next election, when she announced yesterday pay increases for the public service.

    • Yes indeed.

    • CodexCoder

      She is going to use the $4B to buy the public service’s loyalty for the next election and still balance the budget (in my dreams – technicolor dreams…). Meanwhile, she will not move one inch closer to reducing the debt and the roots of the problem – $1B per month in interest payments.

    • And she’ll get in, too.

    They are at least 10 years too late in (feebly) addressing this mess. It’s impossible to overstate the harm the Liberals and their insane progressive policies have done to Ontario. “Ruinous” doesn’t begin to cover it.

  • They’ll find another way to gouge us.

      Carbon taxes, and more taxes on taxes.
