      • Just a few points:

        People here should be willing to do this survey BUT!!!!
        BE RESPONSIVE to the question.
        If you want to say your piece — do so — but answer the question first.

        For example at one point they ask how much more Aboriginals should receive for their FIT grants. May answer was something like this:

        They should receive Zero Additional Funds for their FIT subsidies. I have already stated that I believe that the correct subsidy under the FIT program is Zero and that electrical generation systems should be chosen on their merits as being effective, efficient and productive providers of power.

        My first point is RESPONSIVE to the question — then my “rant” or additional points follows.

        It makes it tough to throw out my survey…

        So have at it and have fun — but do answer the question first!. They do provide reference materials and links to the documents in question — so there is no excuse for not understanding the question.

        Find the time!

  1. Everyone here needs to look at the Trillum Grants .
    People need to know what is going on in the Public Relations Industry.

    Environment category from 2006 on.
    Pay particular attention to the PR grooming funding , it is all encompassing even directly focussing on your children.
    Scandalous.

  2. Well, I did respond to the survey. I am sure it will go in the green round bin. Everyone here should respond to the survey and ask them to close the program. That is the ultimate improvement.

    • You cannot call the Liberal PR machine
      Nor the Carbon Tax Industry ..stupid.
      The questions were directed…but you have a chance to put in a submission.
      Rural Ontario is Furious. They are done being pushed around.
      Liberals understand it.
      As does the Wind and Solar Industry.

  3. I answered each question honestly, followed by a lengthy suggestion on what they need to do, starting with returningn to democracy. Let the idiots who want turbines put them on their own property, far from people who don’t. Leave our rural and agricultural lands alone. No-one should be allowed to pay my neighbour enough money that he is willing to ruin my life, and to make matters worse, you take away our basic right. The right to say, NO.

  4. Even the Brits are contributing…

    In a like vein to mine…

    “Hundreds of solar companies are likely to go bust by Christmas after the Department for Energy and Climate Change confirmed it is looking to halve subsidies for new panels.

    Greg Barker, minister for climate change, said the “feed-in tariff” subsidies are currently too generous, because the cost of installing solar panels has fallen.

    The proposed cuts, due to come into force from December, will see the amount earned from each panel fall from 43.3p per kilowatt hour of solar power to 21p. This will save energy customers around £23 a year – or £700m in total – because the subsidies are funded through electricity bills. “

    Trouble is they only did a “half job” as usual…

    Now there’s your endorsement of “Green Policy”.

  5. David Robinson gave the best advice for correctly answering questions in the survey. It would be great to have this advice printed for everyone to read before clicking the Survey button. Again:

    I wish I had been able to read this prior to taking the survey.
