    McGuinty’s Green Energy Act
    a much bigger failure than E-Health – the largest tax grab in the history of Ontario
    Doing things to improve our environment is a great idea. Unfortunately Dalton McGuinty’s green energy projects have turned out to be much bigger failures than the $1 billion E-Health scandal, roughly 18 billion dollars wasted. And some of that money went to enrich Dalton’s friends.
    Why is Dalton McGuinty so adamant about spending $15 billion on Wind Turbines that don’t work?
    There appears to be only one good answer. A large part of that money will be going to Dalton’s friends like Mike Crawley, former president of the Liberal Party and CEO of AIM PowerGen (now International Power Canada) who was awarded a guaranteed 20-year, $66,000.00 a day Ontario ($475 million) government contract to supply Ontario with electricity at a fixed price 60% higher than the fixed price consumers pay!
    This is the same Mike Crawley who sent out e-mails to various parties in the midst of the bidding process for this contract encouraging their attendance at the energy minister’s fundraiser at $5,000.00 a pop.
    Details found here: http://hansardindex.ontla.on.ca/hansardeissue/38-1/l093.htm
    Or how much is going to our former Liberal Premier, David Peterson, a good friend and mentor of Dalton McGuinty who is heavily invested & owns green/wind turbine companies along with ex-liberal MPPs? Peterson now sits on the board of directors of two wind energy companies (Ventus Energy Inc. and Ventus Energy West Cape Windpower LP).
    Wind Turbines are useless and horrendously expensive
    McGuinty’s rush to spend $15 billion on wind turbines without doing his homework to find out they don’t work, is another of his failed visions. Wind turbines only work when there is wind and don’t work when the wind is too strong. It hasn’t occurred to Dalton that we won’t have power when there is no wind (about 65% of the time), unless we have back-up plants that are gas or coal-fired. So we have to pay for two plants instead of one. Sounds more like tunnel vision to me. In Denmark where they pioneered wind turbines, the cost of hydro is now triple what we pay! And they import most of their hydro from Norway. Dalton McGuinty fired his Green Energy Tsar Hugh McLeod, who was drawing a salary of $320,000.00 per year, because in two years he achieved nothing! And then he complains when the Federal Government is ignoring his financial demands to support his wasteful Green Energy fantasies.
    McGuinty’s Green Energy Act is a flop
    After proclaiming the Green Energy Act, McGuinty claimed that this Green Energy Act would create 50,000 jobs, but so far only 13,000 jobs were created, and for every Green Energy job created, 2.2 jobs are lost elsewhere. Our super tax man Dalton McGuinty’s tax, tax, and tax regime has sent thousands of jobs overseas and has bankrupted thousands of small companies with excessive taxes, outrageous hydro bills, and regulations and because they can no longer afford to do business in Ontario.
    Solar Panels are frightfully expense and it takes fifty years of hydro savings to pay for them. Will they last fifty years?
    Many solar power companies now sit idle, not knowing what to do because their products aren’t selling, after finding that Dalton McGuinty is now refusing to connect their customers to the power grid after spending hundreds of thousand dollars on solar panels.
    The only way the Province can entice homeowners and businesses to install solar panels is by paying them about five times what we pay for hydro for any surplus solar energy they can produce and sell back to the Province. And now that they find that the Province will not connect them to the power grid and that they wasted all their money on expensive installations.

    Solar Power isn’t successful anywhere else
    The case of California-based solar power manufacturer Solyndra Inc. is being held up by Republicans and right-leaning economists alike in the U.S. as an example of Mr. Obama’s misguided approach to economic policy-making. The company got a $535-million (U.S.) loan guarantee under Mr. Obama’s 2009 stimulus package. On Wednesday, it declared bankruptcy, leaving more than 1,100 out of work.
    Solyndra’s was the third bankruptcy filing by a U.S. solar company in the past month, undermining a major thrust of the President’s economic policy.

    Why are Dalton McGuinty and Brad Duguid so desperate?

    Now out of sheer desperation, Dalton McGuinty decided to renegotiate his sweetheart deal with Samsung of Korea to make it more difficult for Tim Hudak to cancel the deal if he’s elected. And that in the face of generally strong opposition to it by the public, who is aware that McGuinty’s Green Energy plans have been a big flop. Why?

    Dalton wants to ensure that the cushy $150,000.00 plus jobs Samsung’s deal will create cannot be cancelled, because Dalton and his pals will need these jobs when they get turfed out of office on October 6.
    I hope Mr. McGuinty’s liberal government gets turfed out of office in October 6. We cannot afford them anymore!
    Carbon trading credits will allow companies to go on polluting by paying for it. This does not reduce pollution and is nothing more than a system of taking money from rich nations to give to the poor which usually consist of African dictators who will put that money into a Swiss bank account instead of using it to reduce pollution. Call this is the modern wealth redistribution system. In Europe where this system is already in place, organized crime has bilked the scheme of billions of dollars and nobody knows how to stop it.
    Please read an excellent book on Global Warming by Christopher Horner called ‘Red Hot Lies’. The book revealed the truth about global warming long before the famous climate gate and the exposed e-mails.
