Let’s Not Pass On This Green Energy Mess (Feb./Mar. 2017)

I know the subject of Hydro prices has been front and centre now for the last few years as the costs of the Green Energy Act start to show up on our hydro bills. Oh, maybe I shouldn’t call it hydro since we now have many of our water generators turned off in favour of paying large foreign companies a subsidized rate for green power. And now, they are going to abandon the ‘time of use billing’ after paying over 2 billion dollars to roll out the meters according to Bonnie Lysk the provincial auditor-general who also says the ‘global adjustment’ cost us over 50 billion dollars between 2006 and 2015.

But I digress! The premier has come to our rescue this year, first with the HST tax cut from the bill and now a twenty-five percent reduction, to try and quell the whining and sniveling, ungrateful citizens who need to make choices of whether to buy food or pay the hydro bill. This “basket of deplorables”, (to steal Hillary’s famous line) obviously do not appreciate the cross that the premier bares as she leads the elite highly trained forces into the final battle to save those extremely uninformed subculture masses that are racing towards the final destruction of the world as we know it. The facts don’t matter when the stakes are so high, and so, in times of national security, governments often enact something along the lines of the War Measures Act, so that they can do legally, that which, under ordinary circumstances would be illegal. One could consider the Green Energy Act, such an act. It gave the government the power to make sole source contracts with unbelievable contracts with property owners, who were signed to secrecy, with special handouts to liberal insiders and supporters to ensure the complete support of the backroom of that party.

But wait, it looks like the danger of global meltdown is not so imminent now that the polls say the Liberal party would be reduced to eleven seats if an election was held right now. So NOW the premier thinks it is unfair for us to pay for all this new infrastructure that was required to run new lines and power stations across Ontario to facilitate the solar panel and windmill connections. This of course is the infrastructure she talks about replacing. It is not the thousands of towers, poles and lines that were replaced after the ice storm of 1996 that are already paid for. Now, the ‘pay as we go mentality’ that used to be expected of our government has been allowed to morph into a ‘put it on my bill’ mentality and we will pay you later. Much later! Even better, how about we push it down the road 30 years and let our grandkids get a ‘consolidation loan’ so they can pay it off along with their university debt. Is this generation of deplorables so lacking in pride that we would stand by and let this mentality continue from any party? Let’s call them on it and pay as we go, look after the environment with some well-placed common sense. Let’s give our grandkids and great grandkids some hope for success in the future and maybe, when they look back, they will be proud of us and the country we left them, instead of passing off a failed, bankrupt social experiment that we allowed the all-knowing elite to direct to its final conclusion, as did so many other countries throughout the world. Let’s make them proud. I know that I have always been so proud and thankful for all the sacrifice that my family and their generation made, to pass on to me, such a truly wonderful country.
