Being “dangerous” inside Liberal back room dealings to continue the Green Energy Fraud which is quickly destroying Ontario’s energy sector should be translated as “dangerous to have some guy EXPOSING the untruths and non credible mouth pieces that we employ to screw Ontario Citizens out of their hard earned dollars”!
This has gone beyond the “sublime to the ridiculous”!
Tom Adams has unswervingly criticised the Liberals handling of Gas Plant Documents and has exposed to Liberal propaganda machine as being very very DANGEROUS to the overall health of Ontario’s Industrial base and Citizen’s ability to pay for electrical power!
You won’t read any of Tom’s posts in the mainstream Liberal biased media so here we have in all it’s truthful glory.
A small light in an overwhelmingly dark period in the once great Province called Ontario!

The first witness coming up at the Ontario Liberal gas scandal hearings tomorrow will be Alicia Johnston. Johnson is formerly a senior political staffer for Energy Minister Brad Duguid, later promoted to the Premier’s Office.
Discovered in one of the Gas Busters documents is a November 2010 email exchange where Johnston is talking about how the government needs to deal with the electricity scandals then going on, including public concern about upcoming rate increases outlined in the the government’s Long Term Energy Plan and the decision to cancel the Oakville power plant.
Given Johnston’s key roles on the power plant issues with both the Energy Minister and then the Premier, one might anticipate mountains of material in gas scandal FOI results and documents disclosed to the Justice Committee. Instead, we see a vanishing small record, particularly sparse in more recent times. Connecting these dots suggests that Johnston may be yet another senior Liberal lawbreaking public document scorcher.
In this 2010 email exchange, Johnston proposes to promote the (my link) Toronto Star’s Tyler Hamilton. She says, “We’ve got to get him out as an ‘expert’ commentator.” I have previously reviewed some of Hamilton’s electricity writings, concluding that he provides only “an information marshmallow — soft, sweet, and unhealthy.” Hamilton blocks me on Twitter. I have remarked on many individual instances of Toronto Star journalists being manipulated for the benefit of utilities and the Ontario government. Here is an example.
In the 2010 email exchange, Johnston but goes on to complain that Tom Adams is “killing me”. (my bold)
The recipient of the email is a senior Ontario Power Authority executive Ben Chin. Chin was then a recently unsuccessful Liberal candidate, recycled as trusted government electricity communications advisor on the OPA’s sumptuous payroll. Chin writes back about how to manage a productive relationship with Hamilton. Chin says the government needs to “make Tyler feel special. We need to throw him some work. He doesn’t need it, but everyone likes feeling wanted. I really want to engage him for central. It would be a good score.” However, Chin also warns Johnston that industry experts listen to Adams and that Adams is “very very dangerous and beyond our control”.
