Pray it doesn’t blow any more than it did on Monday of this week. Across Ontario the Wind Turbines were basically spinning a “golden thread” for the small group of Wind Investors hand picked by our Liberal rulers to make huge amounts of money off the broken backs of Ontario workers and families!


To the tune of 10 MILLION dollars?…..say it ain’t so Joe……………………but it is……………….and as the majority Government haunting Queen’s park these days would say to themselves…………”Thanks SUCKERS!

Ontario’s $10-million DAY

Ontario: more to worry about than inside-out umbrellas
Ontario: more to worry about than inside-out umbrellas

Ontario throws another $10 million into the wind—in just one day

The wind was howling throughout Ontario November 24, 2014 and the wind turbines were cranking out power that Ontario didn’t need.  It cost Ontario’s ratepayers over $10 million dollars for just one day.

Wind generated 45,527 megawatt hours (MWh) that day and another 7,200 MWh were constrained.  At $135/MWh the power generated cost about $6.1 million and the constrained wind production cost another $900,000.

At the same time, Ontario was steaming off 6 to 7,000 MWh at Bruce Nuclear paying for that, and paying idling gas plants designed to back up wind and solar generation  The former represented a cost to ratepayers of about $400,000 and the latter about $3.7 million.  The foregoing costs came to about $11.1 million for just that one day.

While that was happening, Ontario was exporting our excess MWh and that day we supplied Michigan, New York, Quebec, etc. with 65,616 MWh at an average price of $11.18 (not a weighted average) generating revenue of about $700,000. In short, the day cost Ontario’s ratepayers well over $10 million with the other exported 20,000 MWh costs factored in.

Energy Minister Chiarelli should inform Finance Minister Sousa that he knows where that missing $509 million in the underground economy is going and just who is responsible!

“Rates going up 1.7% on November 1st 2014”

That’s the message the Ontario Energy Board is pushing on the consumers of electricity in Ontario……….BUT…………………’s a LIE!!!

Does a rate increase of 13.2 % seem more realistic?

Welcome to the “surreal corruption-ridden world of Ontario’s Energy Sector!”

Ontario Energy Board: strange math behind time-of-use pricing


Magic tricks: how the OEB explains electricity bill increases

The Ontario Energy Board’s (OEB) news release of October 16, 2014 tells us that our rates will once again increase on November 1, 2014, but only by 1.7% on the total bill. In their Backgrounder, the OEB tells us that  “Electricity prices make up about half the total of an average household bill.”

If they are telling us they have increased “electricity prices” they should be explaining how much rates are going up in dollars and percentages, and not relate it to the total bill—but maybe that’s a way to lessen the visual impact.  If they were truthful they would annualize the increase.  If they had done that, the story would then be that the electricity portion of our bills has increased 13.2%, measured from the prices applicable on October 31, 2013.

The On-peak rate as of October 31, 2013 was 12.4 cents/kWh and effective November 1, 2014 will be 14 cents/kWh. That’s an increase of 12.9%.  Mid-peak rates one year ago were 10.4 cents/kWh and on November 1, 2014 will be 11.4 cents/kWh, an increase of 9.6%. Off-peak rates will jump to 7.7 cents/kWh from 6.7 cents/kWh, an increase of 22.3%.

Taken together, those increases in the price we pay for electricity increased 13.2 %, or $8.87 a month, and $106.44 for a full year.

OEB not coming clean

The OEB has also never come clean about the requirement to no longer include “line losses” on the electricity line of ratepayers’ bills.  That should have driven time-of-use/TOU pricing down by 5.2%, but didn’t!  Those line losses, effective August 2013 should have reduced electricity costs and increased the delivery line on ratepayers’ bills by an equivalent amount, yet were “forgotten” in the explanations offered by the OEB.  The 5.2% line loss reallocation would represent 33.3 kWh on an average (800 kWh) monthly ratepayer bill. In dollar terms, that’s a $3.95-per-month decrease or $47.40 annually—but it didn’t.  Taken together, the hidden line loss increase, coupled with the approved OEB increase, raised average electricity prices by $12.82 monthly or $153.84 annually.

In just one year, the 4.6 million residential ratepayers in Ontario will have had another $707.7 million removed from their disposable income just to cover the cost of electricity. That’s way over the rate of inflation.  Added to that will be the dollars extracted for rate increases for distribution and regulatory charges for  the other “half the total of an average household bill.

Energy poverty in Ontario

For stay-at-home parents, seniors living on fixed incomes, or the disabled, the increases will affect their ability to simply put food on their tables!

Time for the OEB to come clean with ratepayers and issue “transparent” news, rather than abuse the ratepayers by hiding the true costs of the “greening” of Ontario with wind and solar intermittent generation.

The opinions expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily represent Wind Concerns Ontario policy.

When you listen to the psycho-babble of Greenies who spout the words “sustainable development” a red flag should go off in your head immediately and if you listen to what comes afterwards, it is a litany of Marxist dialogue which will end with a hateful attack on “CAPITALISM”!

Guess who the culprit is within all this garbage?……………Climate Change!…..after all, one has to blame something or someone when trying to organize a seditious movement against the Free World!

Hitler did it in the 30’s…………..Stalin and Lenin used hatred to mobilize the people.. Get someone or something to HATE and then funnel that hatred for the underlying agenda of changing the leadership roles of Governments.

Don’t believe it’s actually happening today?

Naomi Klein, who is just another “self proclaimed environmentalist” helps us out with proof this is happening as she quacks off about her true green agenda with no holds barred about what she really wants to happen………………… has nothing to do with saving the world from man-made Global Warming but is all about destroying Capitalism and replacing it with Socialism.

Hats off Naomi for being so “out there”! We’re pretty sure the insiders at the U.N. who have crafted their messages so anonymously must be a bit perturbed you’ve been so frank about their insidious plans for humanity. Good luck with “hangin’ with the power brokers”!




There’s an old line that environmentalists are “watermelons”—green on the outside, red on the inside. A lot of environmentalists will take great offense if you say this: No no! We like economic growth and capitalism just fine! We just want it to be “sustainable,” whatever that means. And don’t ask for specificity about what “sustainability” means in detail, unless you have a lot of time and a full bottle of hootch handy. Before long you’ll figure out that “sustainable” is just a code word for green things we like, and that it has no rigor whatsoever aside from old-fashioned factor-efficiency, which economists figured out over a century ago at least.

But anyway, environmentalists resist being called socialists. But next week Naomi Klein is coming out with a book called This Changes Everything. In case you’ve forgotten your show notes, Klein is the author of The Shock Doctrine, a book ragingly popular with the far left that is so far gone into absurd conspiracizing and looney renderings of “neoliberalism” that it makes Lyndon LaRouche look positively staid by comparison.

What is the “this” that “changes everything” in her title? Why climate change, don’t you know? And what does it “change”? Why capitalism, of course. The argument of the book in one sentence is that only overthrowing capitalism can solve climate change. Don’t take my word for it. Here’s how the progressive lefty site CommonDreams described it today: “Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism.” For this bit of candor about what we’ve long suspected of the climate campaign, we owe Klein and her followers a debt of thanks. I’m going to send her a bouquet of (sustainably-raised) flowers.



When people take the word of a U.N. Secretary General on what’s going to kill us all, aka. “Global Warming” (now Climate Change) without questioning where he got his proof, then all one can say is that the “patients have taken over the asylum!”

This nothing more than Agenda 21’s last gasp at taking over the governance of the world by way of “Communitarianism”. 

Just because we see and hear that thousands upon thousands of people have taken to the streets to show the rest of the world that “they are RIGHT and we stay at home informed people are WRONG” doesn’t mean squat!

Just like what Naomi Klein just said when she was asked:

Warmist Naomi Klein: ‘Dealing with the climate crisis will require a completely different economic system

During the panel discussion, Klein was asked: “Even if climate change issue did not exist, you would be calling for same structural changes. Klein responded:  ‘Yeah.’

Following the panel, Climate Depot asked Klein if she would support all the same climate “solutions” even if the science was wrong.

“Yes, I would still be for social justice even if there was not climate change. Yes, you caught me Marc,” Klein answered sarcastically as she abruptly ended the interview. [Also see: EU Commissioner: Global Warming Policy Is Right Even If Science Is Wrong ]

So there you have it………it’s not about a fake Climate Change issue but all about a new world governance without any input from the Industrialized Nations who have ruined the Third World and should feel guilty about heating their homes and cooking their meals using anything BUT Wind Energy or Solar Energy. They call it “SOCIAL JUSTICE”.

What they really mean is that everyone in the world should have no more or no less than the next. Sound familiar? Of course these elite “leaders” who are dictating this Agenda should be exempt from this plan to downgrade your life to a cave dwelling existence! (Al Gore is the poster boy for grinding out a living by burning the shit out of fossil fuels to hop scotch around the world to get out a message that we fossil fuel burners are nothing more than pieces of human waste).

But then that’s not as bad as being called “maggots” by David Suzuki, but hey, what does one expect by deranged individuals who have signed unto the UN’s perverted view of the world!

Sit back and enjoy to the gaggle of gerbils as they wind their way down New Yorks’ streets screaming that we should embrace a Carbon Tax on everything we eat or drink or use that involves processing with fossil fuels………..welcome to the new world of uninformed stupidity and ignorance!

One more thing. While you sit there and watch the clown show, turn on all your lights and electrical appliances along with every gas powered accessory in your garage and enjoy the sounds and visual stimulation called your life at home and thank the Industrial Revolution for these magic machines that make your life so rewarding.

NEW YORK, Sept 21 (Reuters) – World leaders including U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon were set to join farmers, fishermen, children and others in a massive demonstration on Sunday to demand action on climate change.

Organizers are expecting 100,000 to join the People’s Climate March in midtown Manhattan ahead of this week’s U.N. General Assembly, which brings together 120 world leaders to discuss reducing carbon emissions that threaten the environment.

The gathering will include celebrities such as musician Sting, scientists in lab coats, labor groups, 20 marching bands and floats powered by biodiesel vehicles or pulled by hand, said Jamie Henn, spokesman for, which organized the event with more than a dozen other environmental, labor and social justice groups.
