By Dave S. Dawdy, The Windsor Star Re: Green energy creates many jobs, by Paco Caudet, July 4.
I read with amusement Mr. Caudet’s letter regarding the creation of green jobs. While I don’t wish to discuss the subsidies to his company specifically, it needs to be pointed out that the entire green energy industry is supported by massive subsidies and government interventions.
Everything involved – the price to be paid for the electricity, the production of the infrastructure, the zoning of land, etc. – has Ontario government fingerprints on it. Anyone involved is getting subsidized, directly or indirectly.
Green energy is a shakedown of current and future taxpayers. It would take far more space than is available to explain why this grand socialistic experiment will fail.
At any rate, no facts or reasoning will convince the hypnotized believers nor those economically involved that this whole thing is a scam. Only economic disaster for Ontario’s taxpayers and electricity customers will change some opinions.
The endless mess in Ontario’s electricity sector will only worsen. Mike Harris wanted the Ontario government out of the electricity business over a decade ago to avoid these boondoggles.
He will be vindicated.
