Must we destroy the environment in order to save it?
In the province of Ontario, the answer seems to be “yes.”
This month, the Liberal provincial government of Dalton McGuinty will finish drafting its proposed Green Energy Act. The Act’s early drafts call for a big increase in renewable energy production in Ontario. Sounds nice! How do we get there?
The plan contains two big elements: (1) a huge cash giveaway and (2) a brusque slap-down of local democracy.
