INSULTING is the only word one can now use whenever this “Liberal Gang Green” ever opens their “pie holes”!
The latest statements by the “mentally challenged” Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli is not only an insult but displays in the public forum how absolutely out of touch this guy is with the reality of our over-inflated electrical costs at all levels of society!
I don’t know who his “handlers or spin-meisters” are, but they sure are a bunch of complete losers who should spend some time on planet Earth and not in the “back room of a hallucinogenic drug lab”!
To come up with crap like this only reinforces the fact that this Government has gone “completely rogue” and should actually be locked out of Queen’s Park until a forensic auditor has had his/her way with the books, if there is any!
One last thing: “keep your damn dirty hands off what’s left of OUR MONEY”!………….and quit calling this a “boondoggle”…………it’s downright THEFT!

Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli says higher energy prices are here to stay, and consumers need to be more active in managing their bills.

If you don’t like your hydro bill, then it’s up to you to do something about it.
Energy minister Bob Chiarelli didn’t quite put it in those terms Wednesday. But it’s clear that consumers will be expected to take a more active role in managing their own bills in future, by choosing how much power they use, and when.
They’ll have to manage consumption, because they can’t expect lower prices, Chiarelli said bluntly, in a theme that will be central to the province’s updated long term energy plan, due to be released Monday.
“There is no government that’s going to commit, or be able to honour a commitment, to reduce rates from where they are now. It’s just a fact of life,” Chiarelli said.
“What we are doing is taking very significant steps to allow people to better control their consumption, and other factors that allow them to impact on their rates.”
“We need to do more to promote energy literacy in this province,” Chiarelli said.
The new site includes videos with titles including “what is a kilowatt hour?” “the value of conservation” and “how is electricity made”?
From Wednesday’s announcement, and from hints dropped in the past weeks, it’s clear that the revamped plan will focus on damping demand rather than boosting supply – or lowering prices.
Chiarelli didn’t apologize for price increases.
