I can see it now, a rat line for kids to call Wynne & Murray to snitch on their parents. "My parents drive a big gas guzzling SUV". Didn't kids belonging to the Hitler Youth rat on neighbours?

As the new year approaches we are reminded of some of the sheer stupidity Wynnebag and her criminals have foisted upon us. Ontario hydro won't shut off your power between December and April. However if you're in arrears and your hydro is shut down in say September it stays off through the winter regardless. Many of the smaller local utilities will shut off hydro even in winter. 

Now here is the real insult to these people. About to start with the new year and the carbon tax, if you can afford an electric car the province is providing a bunch of free recharge stations across the province AND providing free overnight residential charging for four years.

Yep, so you can transfer some of that rididulously expensive "green energy" to your shitty little electric car.  What an inept "leader" she is.

Thanks to that asshole McGuinty & his sidekicks Wynne & Murray.

Talk about pissing away good money. Mind you the Liberals @ both levels are experts in this.

Ontario’s hell-bent determination to phase out coal-fired generation raised electricity rates without significantly improving air pollution levels, a new Fraser Institute report says.

Report co-author Ross McKitrick, an economics professor at the University of Guelph, said the findings should act as a cautionary tale for Alberta and Ottawa currently going down the same road.

Even though there was reliable information available at the time that showed Ontario coal was not a big player in common air pollution ingredients, the political agenda made it impossible to discuss less expensive options to full closure, he said.

“They just demonized it up and down — made it impossible to even have the conversation,” added McKitrick. “They turned it into a really dirty word and that had the effect of shutting down the whole discussion even before it began which, of course, led to a lot of really bad decision making ... The lessons translate directly over to Alberta.”

Ontario closed its last coal plant in 2014, and made it illegal to open any more.

The most significant closures were the Lambton and Nanticoke stations which represented 25% of the province’s total supply of electricity.

Dan Moulton, a spokesman for Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault, said coal plants were a major contributor to air pollution, and a 2016 Toronto Vital Signs report shows a 23% drop in premature deaths and a 41% drop in hospitalizations caused by air pollution since 2004.

“Eliminating coal also took the equivalent of 7 million cars off our roads which remains the single largest climate change action undertaken on the continent,” Moulton said in an e-mail. “The fact is, smog days caused by coal-fired power plants were making our kids sick. Today, those smog days are gone and our kids have cleaner air to breathe.”

The Fraser Institute report, Did the Coal Phase-out Reduce Air Pollution, looked at the impact of closing the plants on the level of fine particulates, nitrogen oxides and ground-level ozones in Toronto, Hamilton and Ottawa.

The small and, in some cases, statistically insignificant improvements in air quality in a few locations could have been achieved more cheaply with pollution control devices like scrubbers, the report concluded.

Residential wood-burning fireplaces, dust from unpaved roads and even meat cooking were bigger contributors to fine particulate emissions than coal-fired generation, according to the 2005 Environment Canada Air Pollution Emissions Inventory.

McKitrick also disputed the health savings claim, noting the government argued in 2005 that it could save $3 billion in annual health care costs by shuttering coal — roughly 10% of the whole health care budget at the time.

“It wasn’t questioned,” McKitrick said. “People were at the time and largely remain very uniformed about the sources of air pollution emissions in Ontario so this picture was created that these two power plants were blanketing the province with smog.”

Scrubbers would not have reduced greenhouse gas emissions, but McKitrick argued the purchase of carbon offsets would have been an inexpensive option.

Expert: No coal costs $5 billion a year

About $5 billion in annual hydro bills are associated with the provincial government’s move to close coal plants and replace them with more expensive sources of electricity, says an independent energy advisor.

Tom Adams said while it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact impact on bills, the cost is far more than the extra $2 a month per customer predicted by one anti-coal group.

“It was a decisive change in the trajectory of electricity costs,” Adams said Monday. “Figuring out exactly what the cost of getting rid of coal is, that’s hard country because there are so many moving parts ... But if I’m asked to put a price tag on it, it’s something like $5 billion a year.”

An Ontario auditor report noted that between 2003-14, the province eliminated 7,546 MW of electricity generation from coal and added 13,595 MW of new capacity — mostly wind, natural gas and nuclear power.

During that time period, Ontario electricity consumers saw the commodity portion of their bill rise by 80%, the auditor found.

While all three provincial political parties favoured the eventual phase out of coal, they were a “little foggy” about how they would replace that relatively cheap and plentiful source of generation, Adams said.

Expensive renewables, gas plant fiascos, pricey nuclear power refurbishment contracts and other questionable actions followed that decision — all driving up the price of electricity, Adams said.

Dan Moulton, a spokesman for Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault, said there have been costs incurred as the government modernized and cleaned up the electricity system. “Ontario has already done the heavy lifting to rebuild aging infrastructure and transition off of coal,” he said.

I don't even think Nanticoke  was really all that clean of a coal plant compared to the ones in the US.

Retards.

I wonder how much of the smog over Ontario comes from the Ohio Valley?

Don't worry about that. Wynnebag is going to fix that for us. She'll put in giant fans all along the southern edge of Ontario to blow it all back south. Don't forget... cost of things are irrelevant. It's for the grandchildren so money is no object.

Just paid $11 on my Propane bill of $208.65 for "Carbon Tax".

Also got a $1.70 credit for the 8% rebate on my Hydro Bill.

In Libtardland, their math would have you ahead @ the end of the day.

So now Wynne is planning to give us relief on hydro pricing.  

Lets see cut 8% tax so far.

Next will give tax credit somewhere.

How about she fire her advisors and reduce government spending on green initiaves, fuck the carbon plan instead of giving us tax credits that only increase the deficit anyhow.

Whats killing our province is the increased government spending and the burden on an overtaxed society.  The hydro is only the tip of the iceberg but she is far too dense to see that.

 

Where the fuck is Killer?  Hasnt shown his face on here or commented about his love of his life Wynne who he so respected.  I wonder why?

150 just laid off at GE in the patch. They would still be working if pipelines were moving ahead as scheduled. Between a poor environment for employers in Ontario and Trudope indecisive on building pipelines or "shutting down the oil sands" why wouldn't they.

Losing a hundred jobs in a relatively small town like Midland will be a significant hit. Take 100 jobs out of the economy and there will be spin off impacts likely due to lower spending by those people.

I have heard from some locals that some of the people at Raytheon in Midland are also concerned about their future. No idea  if it is legitimate concern or just rumour but some people in the town are talking.

Sunny ways everyone.... sunny ways.

So Wynnebag is introducing natural gas to rural locations to help with skyrocketing hydro bills.  So much for her concerns regarding climate change.
