  1. Dalton Believes in Power from Unicorn Farts…Bahahahaha……Green Energy Act is a the Pagan Religion….with no scientific basis…just a relgious myth….complete with their own 450 foot high phallic symbols, designed to look like a crucifix….Thomas Malthus would be proud of these Liberal Fascists….The Ontario Liberals War Against Affordable Energy continues…

  2. IESO is working with the wind industry and other stakeholders. Who are these vested interests?
    Spend more money on weather forecasting and spend more money on anything with the hope that renewable energy can be made to work. It’s the peoples’ money that is being spent to line the pockets of those with vested interests in renewable energy.
