Resisting Green Constitutional Mayhem

Another brilliant piece by Tom Adams….

As even the carpet baggers now exploiting the Green Energy Act subsidies are now publicly warning, the subsidies can’t last. But will McGuinty’s Green Energy Act die a death of a thousand cuts or will it die in a constitutional fireball?

As discussed previously on this blog and in one of my Youtube videos, McGuinty included in his cherished Green Energy Act – engineered to build his legacy – a vicious attack on our most important Parliamentary right, the requirement that our elected representatives must vote in all government spending. How could the Ontario Public Service’s sharp lawyers have allowed this provision, offensive to the Magna Carta Libertatum of 1215, the very foundation of our society, to remain in the legislation?

The story of how this rot started illustrates the vapid core of McGuinty’s imperious energy schemes for Ontario.   Read the entire article on Tom Adam’s Blog

  1. “The only way the citizens of Ontario can protect themselves from their Premier who the elected and pay, is to challenge him in court!”

    What’s wrong with this statement? Have we gone so far “down the rabbit hole” that even to consider this action now seems “normal”?


  2. Maybe we need a recall provision in Ontario to protect us against this kind of Tyranny in the future ….

  3. Tom Points out that “Ontario Sustainable Energy Alliance (OSEA) claims to “represent the consumer interests that demanded the GEA in the first place”.

    If you want to find out a bit more about how we got into this mess — have a look at one of the lobbying groups that claims to support you.

    The page I have linked to shows their voting member list.

    I don’t think that any of those groups represent me.

    For some real entertainment. Do a google search on their address and phone number. See what you turn up!

    Happy hunting!

  4. I can’t resist adding this note on the people behind SEA — that represented you as the GEA was written….

    You can see why the Ontario Green Energy Act was structured the way it was. These people are not powerhouses of technical knowledge of energy and distribution systems.

    My second question is simply this: “Why did the province of Ontario let the lobby on behalf of the GEA when the lack of knowledge in these matters was so apparent?”.

    Is this the reason we now have a constitutional crisis?
