  1. Like to go on a little tour down Talbot Trail
    with a few of the folks from MPAC and have
    them explain to me again how it is they figure
    IWT’s will have no impact on property value.

  2. When you go back to ~ 1996 or to the time that Ontario Hydro was broken up then the answers begin to appear. With the way Hydo was being operated there was no room for outsiders to make money producing power in Ontario so either Hydo had to share power production or be broken up

    Once broken up the money people moved in to produce and sell power back to the Hydro system.
    Things were not moving fast enough so 2006 & 2009 legislation got the ball rolling with subsidies added. Now excess power could be produced and sold/dumped onto the grid to Quebec and the States with Hydo customers footing the bill. Maybe some nice profits for transmission operators and those who get this excess power to sell in other markets.

    • Then in the States by the end of 2000 the U.S. government no longer allowed power producing companies to own inter-state transmission lines. So these inter-state transmission lines were sold to companies only in the transmission business. So this allowed the set up of a U.S. national grid which also connects to Canada.

    Help me out here. Is this the same Tom Adams we keep hearing from regarding electrical grid …”follow the Money, Tom Adams” who spoke at the Meaford town hall last year?
    Do the above indicate he helped create this mess or has he been a knowledgeable person who has seen it all unfold to financially ruin Ontario and is speaking out ?
