The Ontario Liberal government's anti-democratic Green Energy Act and its ought-to-be-criminal flouting of fiduciary duty to the tax- and ratepayers of Ontario have resulted in, amongst many other wasteful and corrupt boondoggles, some of the highest electricity prices in the world.
- From the Office of the Auditor General of Ontario Annual Report 2015:
"Expensive wind and solar energy—We calculate that electricity consumers have had to pay $9.2 billion…more for renewables over the 20-year contract terms under the Ministry’s current guaranteed-price renewable program than they would have paid under the previous program…We found that the prices under Ontario’s guaranteed-price renewable program were...double the market price for wind and three and a half times the market price for solar energy in 2014."

Aiming to protect Tundra Swan migration habitat from environmentally destructive, economically-useless industrial wind turbines.

Migration habitat threatened by wind turbines at Grand Bend, Lake Huron.
Some 10,000-15,000 Tundra Swans make a pit stop in the Grand Bend area on Lake Huron every March on their 6,500 kilometre epic migration from the eastern seaboard of the USA to their breeding grounds on the Arctic tundra of Canada and Alaska. We may have seen the last of this great migration because the unique resting, feeding and staging ground that is the Thedford Bog and flats near Grand Bend is threatened by the proliferation of hundreds of industrial wind turbines. Experts say that if the bog is surrounded by the wind factories as proposed, the turbines may not only kill swans but also permanently displace them by destroying the birds' access to the wide expanse of flat, boggy fields that afford perfect conditions for safety, quiet rest, food and staging room.

    Let’s stop calling industrial wind factories ‘farms’ or ‘parks’ or ’projects’ as if they complement a rural setting, as if they are benign, productive or beneficial. Make no mistake: these are sprawling industrial factories, useless ones, plonked ruthlessly and cold-bloodedly into the middle of working farms, and right beside homes, schools, and airports, and in pastoral landscapes and environmentally sensitive natural beauty. wolfhillblog.wordpress.com/

    Leslie Street Spit, Tommy Thompson Park, Outer Harbour East Headland, all the same thing - an Important Bird Area. See why industrial wind turbines put there (or anywhere) would be criminal - http://tinyurl.com/25vau39

    David Suzuki Foundation covers its ass: no turbines in IBAs but deems toxic Green Energy Act as being "progressive"! http://tinyurl.com/pcj49ah
