Last year, Dwight Duncan was in Tecumseh to make an announcement regarding placing expensive taxpayer-subsidized solar panels on a government building.
Impressionable schoolchildren were brought in for the photo-op at which time Dwight Duncan said that people want to question the financial feasibility of projects like this but we have to do them no matter what the cost.
He labelled us as naysayers to be dismissed, and Duncan proudly cut the ribbon and kissed the closest available baby. Fast-forward to the news from his own Liberal Energy Minister Brad Duguid that they were cutting the generous taxpayer subsidy to solar and we now have a totally different outcome for solar projects in Ontario.
Dwight, your own government is questioning the feasibility. To say the solar companies are mad is an understatement.
This government, including Dwight Duncan and all other political parties that dismissed legitimate concerns about the long-term feasibility of these fantasy-laced green energy projects at a time when Ontario has an abundance of energy, should be ashamed of themselves for being so reckless with tax dollars.
To those that supported this nonsense in the Liberal, NDP and the Conservative parties, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Maybe next time you will pick up a book and read up on the 40-year history of these green-energy schemes and to some who knew and said nothing. Next time have some courage to take a stand.
