If you’re a voter in the Feb. 11 Whitby-Oshawa byelection and you’re dissatisfied with the status quo in Ontario politics, I have a better way for you to protest than not voting or declining your ballot.
Not voting gives silent consent to the current system.
Governments must stop picking winners and losers and let the market decide.
We hear a lot these days from politicians, environmentalists and the industry itself about electric vehicles being on the cutting edge of the new green energy revolution aimed at fighting man-made climate change.
So how are they doing, sales wise?
Canada will miss its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets until it invests in new energy technologies, not just a favoured few.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premiers will be putting on their green-coloured glasses for their upcoming first ministers’ meeting on Monday, a week before the start of the United Nations’ climate-change conference in Paris.
Do the changes Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal government made to their law regarding politically partisan advertising violate provincial and federal election laws and regulations?
Cap-and-trade and selling Hydro One are even bigger mistakes than the Liberals’ disastrous green energy plan.
Premier Kathleen Wynne can’t stop rising energy costs in Ontario because of her refusal to buy hydro power from Quebec for as little as three cents per kilowatt-hour.
This instead of paying six cents and rising for power from refurbished nuclear power plants, similar amounts for imported natural gas-fueled peaking power, and twelve cents or more for 20-year green energy subsidies.
