It all started after Mike Crawley sat on the Renewable Energy Task Team (RETT) back in 2003 RETT was responsible for setting the stage for subsidizing the wind industry in Ontario.
Why was Mike Crawley chosen for a $475M contract when ninety other companies came forward? He had virtually no experience in this wind industry.
Why was the flagrant abuse of the Standard Offer Program (piece-mealing the Norfolk and Harrow wind farms in order to obtain millions of dollars of extra subsidies) ignored? They quickly tightened the rules for others but allowed Crawley’s projects through with no penalty or repercussions.
Why was his UK parent company eligible to receive outrageous subsidies paid out of Ontarian’s pockets? The SOP was originally sold to the public as a program for communities and small, private companies…not foreign corporations on the London Stock Exchange.
Why, on Mike Crawley’s command, did the special unit of OPP drive all the way down from Toronto to “investigate” and question those who might be thinking of protesting his little ribbon cutting ceremony?
Why did the local Liberal MP, Bruce Crozier speak out against the offshore project in the area yet was completely silent and refused to even respond to concerns about Mike Crawley’s Harrow project?
How can Crawley simply ignore the pleas of people having to abandon their homes in Frogmore/Clear Creek piecemealed project? Perhaps he knows from his Liberal buddies there will no repercussions or consequences.
Perhaps this will give you a clue…
