HY­DRO HIJINKS

Ottawa Sun - - COMMENT -

With On­tario al­ready pro­duc­ing a sur­plus in elec­tric­ity, which it sells off at a huge lost, cost­ing tax­pay­ers mil­lions, why on earth is the Wynne govern­ment un­der­tak­ing a se­cret deal to pur­chase more from Que­bec? Tax­pay­ers are al­ready on the hook to re­pay the bil­lions Wynne is dol­ing out in hy­dro re­bates to buy back vot­ers. From giv­ing for­eign sup­pli­ers of wind tur­bines and so­lar sys­tem up­wards of $20 bil­lion, while forc­ing many large com­pa­nies to flee our have-not prov­ince due to es­ca­lat­ing green pro­duced elec­tric­ity, the Wynne/ McGuinty gov­ern­ments have to­tally bun­gled the hy­dro file and needs to be shown the door next elec­tion.

LARRY COMEAU OT­TAWA (The vot­ers have that ... ahem, power.)
