Imagine a socialist government that can’t even please the people they are throwing money at. You’ve just imagined Rachel Notley’s NDP.
The Alberta government recently announced they are handing out $5M dollars to municipal governments to install solar panels and they are offering another $500,000 dollars for farmers to do the same.
But like so much the NDP does, they couldn’t do this right, either.
The solar panel companies are complaining about the roll out of the program, saying that since the solar rebates for municipalities don't kick in until March, whatever business these companies were going to do between now and then is being delayed until the rebates come into effect.
The solar companies aren’t getting their indirect corporate welfare quickly enough.
When you’re shuffling around in a sweater because you’re paying 30% more for natural gas as temperatures plummet, someone is getting that money to put a solar panel on their barn.
Doesn’t that warm your heart?
