Wind power is being foisted on the unsuspecting Ontario consumer by one of the worst premiers we have ever had. Having squandered hundreds of millions on bailouts for the sinking auto sector, he is now prepared to throw our money at an expensive “alternative” source of unreliable power.
Governments are terrible at picking winners in business and this premier is a classic case, calling every black hole he throws money into an investment.
This is not something the Citizen should be cheering. It is just another example of how the McGuinty government has taken Ontario from a have to a have-not province. The Liberal mantra seems to be: short-term gain for long-term pain. Ontario will be even less competitive once the added drag from wind turbines is felt.
