  1. Keep it up, Ontario will soon be BROKE like in Greece. Then What??? Our feds are no help are they? Hell they will hold the door open to allow small business and others that can not afford to live in Wynntario to gladly go elsewhere.

  2. And all of this for ‘clean’ renewable energy that is not at all clean. The ideologues behind this continue to forge blindly forward.

    Why is it so difficult for them to see the ‘writing on the wall’?

    I’m grateful to business owners like Mr Ellis for speaking out in no uncertain terms like this!
