Ontario provides funding for the proponents of wind and solar energy.

They are even getting into your schools.

Energy use breaks down this way, homeowners use 30%, business uses 70%.

While you watch 1000’s of acres of land taken over by wind turbines and solar farms, turning much of rural Ontario into a wasteland in the guise of going green.

Ask yourself this question.

Didn’t we elect this party to stop the privatization of Ontario Hydro and prevent our hydro being put into the hands of for profit businesses?

Isn’t this what is happening now?

Our taxes should go to make our lives better. There is nothing evil about our taxes subsidizing hydro to make it affordable to all Ontarians.

What better use of our tax dollars?

The Green Energy Act, green by name alone is designed to take the say in what happens in your own communities away from you ,to trump your rights for the benefit of profits.

Including the tar sands Canada contributes 3% of the globes CO2 emissions. That’s 30% less than Germany.

Since 2008 our energy use has been dropping.

If this is about clean air and sustainable energy, rather than privatizing for profit our hydro system then we should be provided affordable subsidies to adopt alternate energy like solar. Homes and business can significantly lower demand by installing solar panels, farms can install a few small wind turbines. This would benefit the taxpayer by lowering their energy bills, allowing future growth and demand for energy for new business.

But it does not give huge profits to wind and solar developers.

There is nothing, nothing more important than freedom.

Despots are being deposed in the Middle East right now.

The real election issue facing us in Ontario Politics should be protecting our freedom from political parties that serve to protect business profits.

There is no place in Ontario, which is supposed to be a free and democratic society for a government that passes the GEA.

Now the Liberals still have time to redeem themselves.

Enest Horvath,

Meaford, Ont
