Toronto Star Finally, our premier is listening to more level-headed people in the cabinet. He should have done this long ago. The “green energy” plans his energy and infrastructure minister have presented have set the government against the people it governs, threatened whole communities, make little or no economic or environmental sense, give the appearance that the government is in bed with the wind energy companies, create lucrative opportunities for expensive consultants, and in some cases endanger the public’s health. It is an ill-conceived plan that has removed people’s rights to legitimately object to the actions of their government.
Congratulations to the Liberal cabinet members who finally found the courage to speak up. One hopes this will mean that Dalton McGuinty will rethink his government’s entire approach to green energy and start exploring a range of viable options instead of dumping wind turbines on unwilling communities.
