Starting 14 years ago, environmental activists like Gerald Butts, along with then premier Dalton McGuinty and his Liberal government, began planning the misguided path that led to Ontario’s renewable energy downfall.
They became the architects of Ontario’s current and future power malaise.
Over the weekend, Patrick Brown, leader of the PC Party of Ontario, came up with a promise for everybody.
There were 147 promises, to be exact.
You get a promise and you get a promise and you get a promise.

I am tired of being to hold my nose and vote for a compromise candidate, and Brown frankly doesn’t even qualify as such, he is the bastard offspring of Wynne and McGuinty.
The soon to-be-announced clean fuel regulations are just the latest example of politicians catering to climate activists.
Patrick Brown – hair lacks leadership quality.
This is the most heartening part of the manifesto… Brown said if he cannot implement his five main promises he will not seek a second term as premier.
Ontario lost between $732 million and $1.25 billion over the past two years selling surplus clean electricity outside the province, an analysis by the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) estimates.
That’s the difference between what Ontario agreed to pay to produce nuclear, water, wind and solar power, and the bargain basement price it sold it for on the international market.
Ontario’s legislature is expected to pass a bill today that would force striking faculty at the province’s colleges to return to work.
The governing Liberals have made slow progress in pushing through their back-to-work bill because the New Democrats have refused to agree to speedy passage.
Fire every striking teacher and strip them of their teaching credentials.
The lawyers argue that prosecutors haven’t met the minimal threshold of “some evidence,” have failed to muster the slimmest of cases and that the charges should be dismissed
I bet they skate.
There is a double-edged sword when it comes to third-party attack ads during election campaigns in Ontario.
Partisan politicos love them when their arch rivals are being cut to shreds, but equally hate them when their own party is being sliced and diced.
And it is not exactly small change being thrown around.
An Ontario doctor says health-care wait times have reached “insane” lengths in the province, as one of her patients faces a 4.5-year wait to see a neurologist.
“Ontarians are benefiting from the years of investment we have made in the province’s electricity system. We can be proud of what we have all accomplished.”
All fundamentalisms have a totalitarian impulse, and secular fundamentalism is not immune. Canada has its share of secular fundamentalists infected with that impulse.
Much attention has been given to the face-covering law passed last week in Quebec. This week, Ontario will pass a law limiting protests against abortion that merits similar attention. In both cases, disproportionate measures are employed to limit freedoms, not to address a pressing public policy issue but as a form of official denunciation, backed by the fierce power of state coercion. One of the signs that totalitarian winds are blowing is when political dissent disappears, with the opposition parties in full cahoots with the government.
Islam is a race according to Patrick Brown aka “The Vote Whore in Short Pants” and the alleged leader of the party that can’t defeat the province’s most despised Premier.
Normally, Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk’s complete evisceration of how Premier Kathleen Wynne plans to pay for her “Fair Hydro Plan” would be an election game changer.
That is, the final nail in the coffin of the Wynne government’s financial credibility, leading to its defeat at the polls in June.
Lysyk’s findings, released Tuesday, are devastating for the Liberals.
