Hudak To McGuinty: “Give People The Facts On Where Their Energy Bills Are Going To Go.”

The Tories say they’ve uncovered a plot to confuse the public about the cost of Ontario’s green energy policy.

A consulting firm – the Sussex Strategy Group – laid out plans for a $300,000 campaign in a confidential document released last month and obtained by the Opposition.

“The document shows residential rates will increase by a further 36 per cent by 2012,” Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak said on Tuesday.

“Enough of the confusion, enough of the attempts to dupe the public. Just give people the facts on where their energy bills are going to go.

“I’m calling on Dalton McGuinty to release his bill impact statements, the details of his sweatheart deal with Samsung, and his overdue long-term energy plan.”

The Premier’s office maintains it did not commission the report and say they are not connected to it in any way.

Premier Dalton McGuinty defended his green energy program at a Hamilton firm that’s partnering with China to build solar panels and create hundreds of local jobs.

“It means our electricity bills are going up. Who the heck wants that? Nobody does,” McGuinty said.

“We have to lay a foundation for new economic growth and that’s what we’re doing working together.

“It means that 300 moms and dads who have these jobs will be able to look their kids in the eye with a sense of hope and optimism about their future.”

The premier said the spending on wind and solar power accounts for only three per cent of the increase in home electricity bills.

  1. “Wind and Solar only represent 3% of our electricity bill”. What about the 37% attributed to delivery charges which is covering , the expansion in transmission for wind resources. Who is paying for that ticket Dalton? Expansion by the way that will never be fully utilized because wind energy is so painfully inefficient providing 50% of the time less than 50% of its nameplate capacity and will never amount to any kind of reduction in coal generation.

  2. Can we the public not get our s**t together and overtake this clown? “It means that 300 moms and dads who have these jobs will be able to look their kids in the eye with a sense of hope and optimism about their future”. That kind of BS makes me sick! Is the public THAT confused that we are going to accespt paying upwards of 15 billion dollars in tax money on 300 jobs? 50 million per job……..How are we suppose to swallow that?

  3. Just count up the manufacturing jobs Ontario has lost in the last few years.

    Good paying jobs lost because they were CO2 producing jobs. Well done greenies and eco-nuts!!!

    And being repaced by a FEW green jobs.

  4. To even have this Clown talk to me about My kids and My future in this Province the way he does is an INSULT………………lucky he doesn’t show his face around MY house…….he wouldn’t be very “welcomed”!
