  1. Duncan is just sewing up the loose ends of the Green Energy Scam!…..he will be “advising” this law firm on who the people are that are the biggest threat to this Scam for it’s completion and will “advise” them how to punish anyone who attempts to dismantle this anti-democratic legislation he helped initiate! Like Bentley, he has to live with his demons of green, but a lwyers office will ease the guilt with a daily dose of psycho-babble!
    Sleep tight Dunc……..we all KNOW what you did!

  2. Wonder how long he had knowledge of this position before he announced he was leaving? It would appear he’s now well on his way to begin reaping the rewards of his complicity in the great greed scam.

    Keep your stick on your sign

  3. Dwight Duncan:
    ‘[excerpt] “I’m looking forward to a different pace — a different lifestyle than what I’ve been leading up until now,” said Duncan in a phone interview on Wednesday.’

    Ugh! – Dwight Duncan – loser
    I will always remember him as McGuinty’s 1st Energy Minister –
    Dwight admitted he did not understand the Energy portfolio –
    McGuinty shuffled his cabinet –
    Dwight was handed the Finance portfolio.


  4. He may be looking for a different pace and lifestyle, but, I’m looking to see him and the Gang Green arrested on criminal charges and face justice for what they are doing to Ontario, specifically, the GEA !!!

  5. Just as we thought. All cut and dried with big law firms tied in now. This is an international scam which Canada is a part of.

  6. I do not understand how all of these top position ministers are allowed to retire under such controversial circumstances and move into positions with industry proponents with considering the overwhelming evidence they contributed to destroying health, homes and communities.
    Carol Mitchell former Min of Ag now a consulting for Samsung, Dwight Duncan… and there are others ….are there no ethical boundaries by which citizens are protected?
    If this isn’t blatant COLLUSION with industry by our so-called leaders I don’t know what is.

    • This kind of activity has been going on for a long time but public had no knowledge of this.
      They are known as “rainmakers” with connections that can bring business to their employers.

      • Exactly correct, Barbara.
        Also, these folks have demonstrated that they have no morals or values, so are well-suited to keep the gravy train going.

  7. Did not take him long to line up at the green gravy train,that he helped create. Conflict of interest means nothing with taxpayer money. What a system.

  8. Pingback: Ontario’s “Green Scam architects” finally leave office! …. disgraced and hated by Rural Ontarians!!! « The Big Green Lie

  9. Don’t forget their huge “payoffs” they receive out of OUR pockets for their “new life”!!!!!!!
    Pupatello still thinks she deserves her 1/4 million handout!
