The Plan – contributed by Paula Peel
In the beginning was the Plan.
And then came the Assumptions.
And the Assumptions were without form.
And the Plan was without substance.
And darkness was upon the face of George Smitherman.
And he spoke among his friends, saying,
“The Ontario Electricity Act is a crock of sh*t, and it stinks.”
And so they went unto Premier McGuinty and said,
“It is a pail of dung, and we can’t live with the smell.
And Premier McGuinty went to Environmentalists, saying,
“It is the container of the excrements, and it is very strong,
such that none may abide by it.”
And the Environmentalists went unto their Boards, saying,
“It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength.”
And the Directors agreed, saying to one another,
“The Feed In Tariff promotes growth, and it is very powerful.”
And David Suzuki went to the Premier, saying unto him,
“This new plan will actively promote the growth and vigor of the Province
with very powerful effects.”
And the Premier looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.
And the Plan became Policy.
And that is how sh*t happens.
