...the reality is that what went on in Oakville and Mississauga — before the Liberals flip-flopped for crass partisan reasons — is nothing compared to what happened in rural communities across Ontario, where the Liberals literally rammed industrial wind turbines down the throats of protesting citizens.Please read Lorrie Goldstein's entire column at Sun News:
Not only did McGuinty arrogantly dismiss these people as “NIMBYS”, his Green Energy Act took away the right of their municipal councils to have any say on the location of the wind turbines planned for their communities.
If Wynne believes it would have been the right thing to do to consult with the residents of Oakville and Mississauga about the gas plants at every step of the process, why hasn’t she paid more than lip service for doing the same with people across the province besieged by industrial wind factories?
Particularly because industrial wind factories haven’t just been a social disaster but a financial one as well, dwarfing even the huge economic damage caused by the Liberal decision to cancel the gas plants.
As noted above, that has cost us $585 million, so far.
But then-auditor general Jim McCarter concluded in his annual report in December, 2011, that the Liberals’ flawed implementation of their renewable energy plan will add billions of dollars to the costs faced by Ontarians, both as taxpayers and electricity consumers, for generations to come.
And it’s only getting worse.
