Dif­fer­ent shades of Patrick Brown

NOW Magazine - - LETTERS -

PC leader Patrick Brown is far from green (NOW, Oc­to­ber 26-Novem­ber 1). He is the op­po­si­tion. Why else would he have op­posed Wynne’s ne­go­ti­a­tions with Que­bec for a 20-year deal to pur­chase re­new­able wa­ter power?

Ac­cord­ing to the On­tario Clean Air Al­liance, this one deal would save On­tar­i­ans $12 bil­lion, be­cause wa­ter power from Que­bec is but a third (5 cents/kWh) the cost of re­build­ing our ag­ing nu­clear fleet (16.5 cents/kWh).

It’s time for Wynne to say yes to Que­bec’s of­fer to sell us low-cost, re­new­able wa­ter power, and for Brown to truly pro­tect the tax­pay­ers he claims to rep­re­sent.
