Hudak Wants Flat-Rate Energy Pricing Option, Renewed Nuclear Strategy

Trying to build off the momentum gained by the missteps made by the Liberal party this past summer, Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak is beginning to outline his Energy Strategy bit by bit.  Hudak told the Ontario Energy Association last Thursday that Ontarians should have a flat-rate electricity pricing option alongside Dalton McGuinty’s. Under McGuinty’s [...]

The Long-Term Effects of the Green Energy Act Failure

Fixing the damage caused by Dalton McGuinty’s failed energy act may be more difficult than simple policy reform. Upon reading a recent article posted on the Ontario-based environmental blog “Enviralment”, I was reminded of just how much leverage simple politics has in influencing governmental decision making.  Then, earlier this week, the Globe and Mail printed [...]

The United States and European Union Join Assault on Ontario’s Green Energy Act

This fall looks like it’s turning out to be a dark one for the Ontario Liberal Party.

    I may have spoken too soon… Yesterday, in a blog post regarding last weeks attack on the Liberal Party’s Green Energy Act by the opposition,  I suggested that time may be running out for Dalton McGuinty. Today, the Toronto star released the results of a political survey suggesting this may truly be the [...]

Consumer Cost of Ontario Green Energy Act: not as green as we thought

It appears that Ontario’s rough summer for energy policy has been extended into the fall. Last Thursday at the Ontario legislature, the New Democratic Party brought to light another questionable semi-clandestine energy policy mov e made by Dalton McGuinty’s liberal government.  In March of this year the Ontario Liberal Party quietly decided to allow the [...]

Japan and the WTO speak out against Ontario’s Green Energy Act

Dalton Mcgunity and the Ontario Liberal party have once again come under fire for their ailing Green Energy act.  This time the issue isn’t provincial, rather it seems that the negative effects of Mcguinty’s energy policy have gone global. Last week at the WTO conference Japan submitted an appeal criticizing the projectionist nature of Ontario’s [...]

Micheal Ignatieff gets it right – Discuss

I know Canadian elections are still potentially years away, 2012 at the latest, but these things tend to creep up on you rather quickly.  Being socially very left wing but then relatively center-right on a number of issues I always tend to have a love-hate relationship with our Prime Minister regardless of his associated party.  [...]
