Dear Ms Horwath
You have invited Ontario citizens to comment on how the Provincial Liberal Energy Policy is affecting us as consumers. The Liberal policies, or lack thereof, are driving this province off the road and “into the ditch”. While rural Ontario residents are chaffing under the inhumane policies of this Liberal government, the New Democratic Party continues to “prop up” this government in hopes of being tossed a few “bones” in the form of minor adoptions of some of the NDP platform in return for support of this “major minority”… to use the words of the former premier of this province.
The suffering, we fear, is only beginning! My wife and I are senior citizens living on a fixed income. We have cut back our budget to a “bare-bones” level and fear that some of the necessities of life such as heat in the winter and food in our stomachs will be the next sacrifices to be made. I’m sure you would be shocked if you knew the small amount of money we’re forced to live on for the rest of our days! All of this while some foreign multi-national energy companies are getting wealthy off those same sacrifices by Ontario’s own people. We will be paying ridiculous rates for our electricity while we subsidize the cost of power to other jurisdictions which are now using those savings against us by taking our jobs and our standard of living. My wife and I are experiencing increased medical costs due, in part, to the impact of increasing age but also due to medical issues that have arisen as industrial wind “farms” continue to be constructed in our “back yard”! For example, neither of us experienced tinnitus or vertigo, or increased difficulties with “impulse control” until Nextera, Capital Power, Samsung, and Niagara Region Wind Company showed up in Haldimand/Norfolk.
