Niagara wants to be called “Green Energy Capital of Canada” even though Green Energy is nothing more than a massive SCAM!

Posted: July 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

Uninformed?………… Naive?……….Stupid?….. Desperate?……………all these words may apply to Niagara’s plan to embrace Green Energy as a description for their Township even though the reputation for this type of Energy is anything BUT Green!

Maybe Council should get a professional “think tank” to do a little research to see how this description will affect visitors attitudes in linking this destructive description with their overall attractiveness as a tourist destination!

Think of an Industry that would look at Niagara for it’s home. As soon as Green Energy is mentioned we all know how destructive it is for Industrial Development. Plant closures all over Ontario due to high priced electricity is running rampant!

Job creator?………………more like Job Killer!

The saddest part of this whole endeavour is the fact that Niagara Falls was the first large electrical producer created by Adam Beck which offered Ontarians the cheapest most dependable Hydro that made Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe the “engine” that once drove Canada’s Industry!

Maybe it’s destiny that the town where it all started may be the one who declares itself totally “sold out” to the Green Energy Scam!

Green energy crown won’t fit: Larocque

Niagara’s decision to crown itself the Green Energy Capital of Canada is an example of this region’s own little Napoleon Complex.

One day in 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte decided to break with tradition and proclaim himself Emperor of France.

On Thursday, Niagara’s regional council voted 20-7 to crown itself the “Green Energy Capital of Canada,” a title that’s a bit of a stretch. It was a pitiful act of putting the cart before the horse.

The idea originated with Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati and was backed by his St. Catharines, Fort Erie and Port Colborne counterparts Brian McMullan, Doug Martin and Vance Badawey. It was panned by Wainfleet Mayor April Jeffs, Welland Mayor Barry Sharpe and Welland Coun. Peter Kormos.

The Region will spend public money on highway signs announcing your arrival in the Green Energy Capital of Canada, then spend the next 10 years trying to convince people the label makes sense.

Certainly, Niagarans are proud of their century-old link with hydroelectricity. Ontario Power Generation’s Niagara Plant Group is the province’s biggest producer of hydroelectricity. But Quebec’s Robert-Bourassa and Newfoundland’s Churchill Falls plants each produce about twice as much as Niagara.
