Energy Policy is a Disaster for Ontario

October 8, 2007

Energy is pretty straightforward until politics is allowed to become involved.

According to the senior policy advisor of the Ministry of Energy $15 billion will give Ont. a clean stable cost effective electrical system. Add politics and the cost becomes $70 billion. Our electrical system must be put back in the hands of the people who know what they are doing. Our electrical rates will rise between 40%and 70%, driving away manufacturing jobs.

Both the Liberal and Conservatives are under the illusion that filling Ont. with wind farms will equate to lower emissions. The World Energy Council states that renewable energy such as wind can raise emission levels.
