Posted: August 25, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ontario Citizens have known for years that anything coming out of McGuinty’s mouth is usually the opposite of what he means.

Now the “good ol’ boys” who have “cashed in” on McGuinty’s Green Scam and helped to bankrupt Ontarians are now “crying foul” over Dalton Gang’s reneging on promises!

BOO F’N HOO!

You “pirates” of Wind and Solar Development should never have been able to operate in Ontario from the start let alone continue selling the Green Scam that has ruined so many lives and financial futures for hard working honest tax payers!

Now your actually SUING Ontario Taxpayers because you’ve been cut off the Public Teet!

Disgusting is too mild a word!

Kelly McParland: News flash, McGuinty Liberals are unreliable

Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty can see his majority government ahead – just past the angry teachers and doctors.

It’s hard to shed too many tears for the alternative energy companies that are in the process of getting shafted by the Ontario government.

Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals, they’ve discovered, can’t be trusted, make decisions based solely on political calculations, don’t understand how business works and treat money like waste water.

So what part of this is news?

A number of alternative-energy firms have taken the government to court over the treatment they received after responding to the government’s former enthusiasm for solar, wind and other forms of alternative energy. Premier Dalton McGuinty was mad keen on green power when it was a big vote-getter, happily setting up programs to grossly overpay for power produced by non-traditional sources.

Officially he’s still an enthusiast, but public interest has waned, and so has the government’s willingness to waste quite as much money. There’s a lot of competition: There are so many other areas in which to waste money, the government can barely keep up. Some of the subsidies have been reduced, and last year the Liberals put a “moratorium” on offshore wind projects.

“Basically, they are saying that anyone who trusts them is foolish,” complained John Kourtoff , chief executive of Trillium Wind Power Corp.,  one of the company’s suing the government.

Well, um … yeah. Anyone who goes into business with any government is taking a risk, but the McGuinty government has always been particularly dangerous. If Mr. McGuinty’s Liberals have a core characteristic, it’s their unreliability. It started almost the moment they took office, when the new premier immediately broke his pledge not to raise taxes. The list of reversals, backtracks, do-overs and whoopsies since then has been long and well-documented, and doesn’t need to be belaboured again. Mr. McGuinty has announced so many changes of mind, he doesn’t even trouble to feign remorse any more. The premier’s response to public anger at the sudden cancellation of a power plant under construction in Mississauga – which will cost at least $190 million in payoffs – was the equivalent of “Yeah, so what?”

The province was in the middle of an election, the riding was in danger, and the decision to axe the plant was purely political, made to try and salvage the seat. The premier shrugged and claimed he was just keeping a promise, since he’d promised to build the plant, and then promised not to. Just like the government promised bonuses to employees at eHealth Ontario and then, when voters got upset, cancelled the cheques. Or just this week, when news reports revealed 98% of public sector managers had been approved for “bonuses” in the middle of what’s supposed to be a pay freeze, it took less than 12 hours for the premier to reverse field: “If everybody gets pay for performance, it’s not pay for performance, it’s pay,” he said. He just hadn’t noticed before, I guess. Of course, if the case hadn’t become public, the bonuses would have been paid. Mr. McGuinty only cares when somebody notices.
