Wynne’s axing of future green energy projects too little, too late

Of all the spending scandals Ontario’s Liberal government has been involved in since 2003, none has been bigger than its mad pursuit of expensive, unreliable and unneeded wind, solar and biofuel energy.

No other scandal — eHealth and Ornge pale by comparison — has cost present and future generations of Ontarians more money.

    Do they still horse whip people?

    So we here in rural Ontario are stuck with a bunch of useless wind turbines cluttering up the country side.

      They can recycle them into useless electric cars.

    I think it is wrong to say “No other scandal has cost present and future generations of Ontarians more money.”

    No one is yet talking about the “Modernized Mining Act where the Dalton Gang and Ms. Kitty deceived the public by changing the 143 yr old act, effectively surrendering sovereignty back to the FN Indians. Apparently the mainstream media still don’t want the public to know the devastating result.

      Well I guess they won’t be needing those new hydro towers the indians having been stealing for scrap at Caledonia.

      It is UNBELIEVABLE that no media has covered this huge story resulting in mining fleeing the province — a province that once was near the top of the best places to produce revenues for Ontario and its citizens and keeping its economy vibrant. Sad.

    Mr Mugwump’s Sun article fails to carry the ball over the goal line since it was the dishonest and reckless vote whoring of the rent seeking nimbys by the “Tim what his name” crowd and the NDP “what’s her name crowd that politicized an innocuous utility issue into Wynne doing what she did to save her skin. And she still won which showed them to be the boobs everyone knew they were.

    Since those contracts are signed, how much are ontarians on the hook for cancelling them.

    • Clausewitz

      More than Wynne will ever own up to. Remember how little she said the gas plant contracts would cost? Remember the final figure?

    The industry has left the province and will not return, no matter wat.
