OPA looking to loosen up domestic content clause?

Note:   The wind industry wants no Canadian content requirement.   Canadian jobs are not their concern — buying their cheap foreign turbines and labour is the goal.

  1. I wonder what their Samsung Partners will have to say about this development.

    It would seem to be stepping around them — wouldn’t it?

  2. Oh Oh…there go the FAKE Jobs for the FAKE Green Energy Act…

  3. McGuinty could keep on revising the HST guidelines, I’m sure he could “tweak” these restrictions as well.
    Though giving municipalities a voice again might be a bit of a stretch.
