COMMENTARY: It’s not about being green — it’s about getting re-elected
The province has announced a new electric vehicle discovery centre in Toronto where you can test-drive and learn about electric vehicles.
The Liberals have sunk $1 million into the project with the hopes of encouraging drivers to go electric.
The opposition says Ontarians can find the information they need at a nearby car dealership.
I think most Canadians are eco-friendly and want to preserve the planet for the next generation.
But I also think most Ontarians feel they have done more than their part — and that’s over and above the overspending and electricity mistakes made by the Liberals.
What about education, healthcare, jobs, the economy?
Where’s the balance?
At what point does the well-being of the province come before Liberal activism and re-election schemes?
This isn’t a financial recession, a natural disaster, or immediate global threat — it’s a self-made electricity crisis from a government that’s been in power for 14 years with no cost analysis or financial plan.
That’s why their loan is being punted to the next generation. They goofed.
And we’re supposed to buy into their cap-and-trade plan?
It will be nice for Ontarians to someday focus on something positive, instead of our self-inflicted rising energy costs.
