Chiarelli avoids answering tough question (from a 7 year old)


When Clara is asked to answer a question in school, she does.

When Clara asks the Energy Minister to answer a question (late last year)…. well, he doesn’t, and then he quits. Then the next Energy Minister doesn’t…and when it is sent to him via hand delivery from his Deputy Minister, he finally responds… but doesn’t answer the question.

As Clara’s older brother would say, Min. Chiarelli, this letter is an “epic FAIL“. Really, “Thank you for your interest in clean energy”?? Bob, thirty-seven wind turbines were just approved to surround this kid’s home and school. Whether you realize it or not, your letter just told her that you don’t like people, cows and birds… that’s why your government is pushing these machines on us and our environment. Otherwise you would have answered her question with a simple “yes”.

    • The Borg, a universally-hated bureaucracy, are actively putting the U.N.’s nihilistic, anti-irrigation, anti-pesticide, anti-farming, anti-business, anti-environment, anti-population, anti-human, anti-capitalist, anti-Western, anti-everything Agenda 21 program into ruthless effect.

      …Lord Monckton…

  1. To give a dishonest answer to a child is beyond disgusting. Tell her the truth Chiarelli. Tell her that you don’t care about her, or any other rural kids, because there is too much at stake for you and your cronies. Tell her that faux-green energy is robbing her of a decent future. Go on Chiarelli, tell her about “clean” energy, the whole dirty truth.

  2. Dear Mr. ‘Thing’ said,
    ‘[excerpt] As the Minister of Energy, I am also concerned that we make sure the things we do to make energy are as safe as possible for all living things.’

    Believe it – or not.

    • As an afterthought –
      Mr. Thing decides to ‘test his limits’ –
      and hand writes:
      ‘[excerpt] Clara,
      Thank you for your interest in clean energy,

      And, this demonstrates – a complete disregard for the real issues surrounding the ‘energy portfolio’ –
      and, is willing to ‘kick the can further down the road’ – further demonstrating
      a complete disconnect with reality.

      It’s a ‘thing’ in Ontario.

  3. Did he really write that he relies on the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario, Dr. Arlene King for decisions? Dr. King wrote a sophomoric paper on wind turbines that she is now afraid to defend in court. She ignored two court rulings to testify and is appealing, at taxpayer’s expense, so she does not have to justify a poorly written and even more poorly researched paper.

  4. Still relying in old standby answers.
    They still think we’re stupid. Really?….
    Even Clara knows what the answers should be, I’ll bet.
    Hey, Chiarelli, hire Clara as a consultant…. She knows more about this stuff than most.

  5. If the world were as the Dishonourable Bob Chiarelli would have us believe, there is no merit to Clara’s concerns about industrial wind energy policies, and we should shame her parents for getting their young child “WORRIED” about irrelevant matters which are beyond Clara’s control.

    Shame on Bob Chiarelli for being a pervert.

  6. So… Question of the day…

    Is Chiarelli

    a) Thoughtless,
    b )Stupid
    C) Clueless,
    d) Indifferent; or,
    e) Ill-informed…
    f) Just like all the other energy ministers…

    Can I pick all six?

    • Ahhh…..yes….Chiarelli…….the ultimate “Post Turtle”

      Someone sent this to me a few days ago and though I’d share it with everyone.

      While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

      The old rancher said, “Well, you know, most politicians are ‘Post Turtles’.”

      Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘Post Turtle’ was.

      The old rancher said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a Post Turtle.”

      The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain…….

      “You know it didn’t get up there by its self, it doesn’t belong up there, it doesn’t know what to do while its up there, it been elevated beyond their ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put it up there to begin with.”

      Best explanation I’ve heard yet.

  7. Given the high rollers that are involved in Ontario IWTs it doubtful that any of the ministers now have much say in IWT affairs let alone the Premier.
    There is a huge flow of money into these projects and money has the say in the direction that things take.
    The only political cure now is to un-elect the present government including the NDPs.

    • The IWT craze is being driven thru QP and not by QP. This is why knowing who these people are is so important.
      Even the Green Energy Act itself was not writen by MPPs but by outside interests.

  8. Kids in mortal danger — Green Energy at its worst…

    The Telegraph reports on a wind turbine in the grounds of a school in Thurso was destroyed by a brisk breeze:

    Two blades were ripped from the 18m high turbine in the Scottish Highlands and thrown up to 60 yards away after it was hit by 40mph gales. A third was left badly buckled.

    Take that! You insolent little twerps! Study your Green Energy Text — or we promise worse!

    • Original report..

      “We should learn from this but experience suggests that it will not be put to good use,” added Mr Young.
      “Highland Council steadfastly refuses to acknowledge any risk from siting small wind turbines in school playgrounds and considers that only at 80mph – twice the wind speed which destroyed the Scrabster Hill turbine – is there any need to consider action.”

      Engineering expertise at its finest… from school boards, local politicians and Gaia Worshipers.

      All hail Gaia!

    “Rooftop solar panels become enemy of U.S. firefighters”
    An article such as this needs to be in the hands of every council and local fire department.
    Solar panels are not without fire risk and no firemen should be asked to put their lives at risk to put out a fire on a building that has solar panels on it.

    Let people who have solar panels pay extra insurance in case their house burns down.

    • Barbara take note!

      Using Freedom of Information requests, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) has uncovered
      showing that the City of Calgary has provided $340,656 to an environmentalist advocacy group/think tank, the Pembina Institute. A majority of the taxpayer funding was to support ‘professional fees’ for communications, disbursements, greenhouse gas offsets and preparing reports.

      What these reports were specifically about, we don’t know, but we can take good guess.

      The funding was provided over a three-year period, averaging $113,552 in taxpayers’ cash a year.

      The Pembina Institute – like the Fraser Institute – is a think-rank that frequently gets involved in important political debates. That’s a good thing, so long as groups involved in political debates aren’t being pumped full of taxpayers’ cash.

      One can just imagine the outcry if the City of Calgary paid the Fraser Institute to write a report on building a competitive business environment or property tax reform. The contents of the report might contain excellent data and recommendations, but that is to miss the point. Groups engaged in political debate – even the non-partisan – should never receive a penny of taxpayer’s cash.

      The CTF for its part has never taken a dollar of government funding in its history. We don’t even issue charity tax receipts. People give to the CTF because they believe in our organization. That’s it.

      The Pembina Institute does some work that we could support on various environmental issues. Some of their positions – like support for a carbon tax – we obviously find disagreeable. But that’s not the point.

      It was for “real scientists” said the mayor — “Real Scientists like Journalism Majors and kids with college diplomas. Yeah right…

      These are the same twerps that fleeced Ontario with the useless work on the GEA.

      What goes around, slimes around.

      • The problem is that governments have taken too much of peoples money by means of forceable income taxes Pay up or else. A small tax is not enough.
        Which by the way is very inflationary.
        The general public does not realize that taxes are included in the price of the products that they purchase.

        and, the Java loves me!

        They do what they wanted to do before the flood and after the flood, before they asked your opinion and after they got it.

        This is what they wanted.

        They take your tax break for this year. The tax hike for 2013 is 13%. In three years, the city tax increases have totalled more than 30%.

        They’ll take the tax break next year and forever if the council lineup doesn’t change.

        It’s now up to you. It is you who will have to mark an X in this October’s city ballot battle if you want your money.

    From: Financial Times
    “Ineos, the chemical group, is considering shutting down its plant in Grangemouth, Scotland…”
    “Anybody who’s an energy user is just going to disappear.”

    • Bishop Hill, Sept.6,2013, Comment on the Grangemouth plant.
      “Where we went wrong”
      “i wonder if things might have turned out a bit different if big business had stood up to the environmentalists rather than being co-opted by them. The funds of the big companies in the UK flow almost exclusively to the greens, So it’s hard to be very sympathetic to their managements.”

  11. Watts Up With That?, Sept.7, 2013
    “Australia liberated from their long national green nightmare”
    “Tony Abbot won the Australian election in a landslide, and vows to abolish the carbon tax as first order of business.”
    It’s interesting to compare this information with the spin that the MSM in Canada, U.S. and the U.K are putting out about this election news and what it means.

      • Take 1 – Action

        ‘[excerpt] And the Sierra Club of Canada and Greenpeace Canada both said any Canadian promises on climate change ring hollow after years of government inaction.’

        Prime Minister Stephen Harper, [are you ready?] –
        you are a ‘carbon footprint’ – a burden to the planet – you must be punished – no Keystone for you!

      • There is another pipeline project with a different route being pushed by a billionaire friend of POTUS.
        Also the oil can be transported by rail. So is all of this being done to please the “greenies”? All talk?

      • It’s complicated – but, it’s about gas,
        here, and abroad.
        That’s my opinion.
