Ontario’s limit on natural gas production will lead to rise in energy poverty

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Ontario’s Liberal government will now be paying natural gas producing power plants that they’ve signed contracts with, to not produce energy. They are doing this while continuing to buy hydroelectric energy from Quebec under their plan to reduce emissions. 

This is ridiculous first because natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel we have but also because these companies are getting paid to forego production all because the government signed contracts with companies to produce energy, in many cases, for far above market rates.

So what’s the bottom line? The government is limiting production from natural gas plants and buying cleaner hydroelectric energy from Quebec, which then results in excess energy that they sell off at a lower cost!

I’ve mentioned the energy poverty in Ontario. I’ve mentioned that people, especially those in rural areas, are paying devastating delivery costs which cause them to have to choose between food and heat.

And this is all done in order to proceed with a clearly unworkable green energy plan that the Ontario government simply won’t put an end to – even if means that people are stuck in food bank lines because they can’t afford to eat.

So much for bleeding heart Liberals.

Is the goal of all this to depopulate Ontario? If so whay bring in more immigrants and refugees? David Suzuki used to scold people with comparisons between the average fuel consumption of someone from the Indian sub-continent compared with a Canadian. That being the case each and every immigrant from that part of the world is a proportional addition to the crime. Is someone from a place in the world where the temperatures rarely go below 30 degrees celcius going to turn down their thermostat? And when they achieve prosperitity in Ontario do you think they will choose a Prius over an SUV to drive the kids to their activities and a perstige sedan for the breadwinner?

If Gerald Butts is trying to force people to make changes through price manipulation the obvious choice is to live elsewhere.

Keith- yes pretty sure she was married to a man once and she said she was screwing Ontario over for her granddaughter’s future. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

Wynne has Grand Children? Sounds a little queer to me.

The cheese has slid right off the cracker in Ontario. Old Orville Redenbocker is equal to a past Romanian dictator.

There’s not enough money in the world to keep Liberals happy. They don’t know how to stop spending . It’s a sickness with them

How about mentally unfit, legally insane, demon possessed?

But it’s all for her grandkid’s future. Surely these politicians who have lost the confidence of the electorate by straying far off of their mandate can be legally booted out.

Priorities are hard for Liberals when it comes to the people’s interest but apparently not so much when it comes to their or their friends interests. Nice. Al Gore would be proud.

The utter insanity of the Ontario Liberals continues.
