    • I totally agree David. I have been keeping a sign in my back window of my car for over a year. It is a great conversion starter for those who are curious.

  1. These projects will increase Ontario’s annual electricity cost by a total of $ 263 million and will add $ 22 to the typical annual residential electricity bill.

  2. That’s great….now can I have you pay for my start up business too

  3. Not only is McGuinty ruining his career as premier but the complete Liberal party for many years to come. I hope a Liberal candidate comes knockin on my door looking for support !!!!!!!!!

  4. I think a simple sign – with the words –
    Mr. McGuinty – You Scare Me! –
    gets the message across……………..

  5. Good idea AJB, travelling with a sign in the back window of your car. Cheap advertising really.
    It gets the message ‘out & about’ as you travel & gets people thinking about the subject, because it`s the farthest thing from most peoples radar, if they or their close friends aren`t threatened personally.
    The more signs seen, the better for the cause.
