Well folks, here we are once again struggling for our democratic rights here in Ontario to prevent the deployment of wind turbines.
I really didn’t think that this would ever reach the approval stage, knowing how Ontarians feel about our democratic rights and freedom of speech.
It never ceases to amaze me that with all the increases in electrical rates and the prospect of paying up to 300% more in five or so years, that most people just sit back and say, ‘oh well, what can we do about it?’
There is a whole lot you can do about it. For a start, let your MPP know how ticked off you are that your civil rights have been eroded by the so-called Green Energy Act, which purports to be helping the greening of the planet. In reality its going to be responsible for putting seniors out of their homes, due to the fact that they will be seriously struggling to pay their hydro bills in five or so years.
On top of this will be the new harmonized tax which will now be added to all your hydro and heating costs.
Dalton McGuinty truly believes that turbines are going to be this provinces’ savior, along with solar energy. Wise up Mr. McGuinty, the wind doesn’t blow when you want it to and the sun doesn’t shine when you want it to. Otherwise people would be booking holidays from April until October, and not the last two weeks in July.
This is the biggest con game ever perpetrated on the people of Ontario. Mr. McGuinty is already building a gas powered generating plant in Oakville, as even he knows that wind turbines will just not cut it. It’s the same scene all around North America.
Face it Mr. McGuinty, without nuclear power, it just isn’t going to work, not now, not ever.
Contained in the federal Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, persons in possession of real property are entitled to enjoy that property without the interference of neighbours creating smells, sounds and pollution, or any other hazard that extends past the boundaries affecting the owners of that property.
So, if the Charter is to be believed, does this now mean that there could be numerous lawsuits placed against property owners, who have allowed the turbine companies to lease parcels of land. I for one happen to believe there will be just that.
Interesting problem for your government, isn’t it Mr. McGuinty.
