Wynne government backs Ontario Energy Board decision to “hide” cost of carbon tax from ratepayers

Brian LilleyArchive

Yesterday I told you about Kathleen Wynne opting to charge a “tax on a tax” with her carbon tax and now, the Ontario Energy Board has decided there’s no reason to show you how much you are paying for it in a separate line item on your bill. 

The charge will be rolled into the delivery charge and, not surprisingly, the Wynne government is backing this. In fact, Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault tells us it’s not up to the government to tell an arms-length organization what to do.

Actually, as the elected officials who are accountable to the people, yes it is.

Watch as I explain why, even if you believe in man-made global warming, we don’t need this carbon tax.

This isn’t about the environment.

It’s about taking more money out of your pocket and hiding it along the way.

Whiny wynne looks more like a man than most men I know – never trust a liberal.

Is it just me or does everybody that sees Wynne’s face have a strong desire to vomit and recoil into the fetal position. This thing doesn’t even look human!

The Ontario Liberals are a joke like many politicians today.There is never enough tax money to satisfy their greed.Haven’t we payed enough for green energy already.Now to insult our intelligence they are going to start hiding carbon taxes.
The green energy legislation was written by communists.Read it.
I hope they are still around when these turbines start tumbling down.The skyline in southern Ontario has been destroyed just like the Ontario economy.
Why the hell are we still putting more up when the people of Ontario pay far more than the US or Quebec when we dump the excess power?
How green is it with the number of bird kills that they inflict?

Patrick Brown is very evidently “missing in action” on this, and a dozen issues before that… So what is he doing for a living these days??… I have it on good authority that dozens of his former supporters at the Canadian Legion in Barrie would like to know…

It should be illegal to roll it into the delivery charge. Why is Patrick Brown not demanding she show the tax separately so people can see how much they are being hosed? She seems to get away with all this stuff without so much as a peep out of anybody.

What will the drones in Toronto and other urban areas do when farms shut down and food stops being grown? Other than blame Harper i mean.

So what happened to blaming Alberta and the high price of oil and the high dollar? Oh yeah, that changed a while back , so why is Ontario still going down the toilet? Mayne it was because the left was full of it and they are the real reason it is going bad. Of course the left never admits fault.

Hey Pat Brown is all down with carbon taxing kleptomania, guess that means he’s OK with covertly burying this thin air tax in supply chain increases – look at your grocery bills in Ontario people – you are seeing 15-100% increases on consumer commodities in quarterly increments – someone is burying increased costs in production and delivery – could those be carbon taxes on suppliers???

Get your heads out of your butts and indict this criminal before you become an insolvent basket case – Venezuela north.

Maybe Patrick Brown could wipe that grin off his face and have these electricity invoices translated so that the average joe can understand the damn thing. Post the results on their web site.

Get off your keister Patrick, and stop kissing ass. You have enough ammo on Wynne to send her away for a few decades. Get on with it slacker. It is called campaigning, duh!

A few years ago when Sun-Media was having its sunset ; all we talked about was the terrible Ontario Government. Thanks to the NDP, Alberta took half the attention off of Winne. With Alberta in decline, we are going back to Ontario’s problems with bad Government.
Solution: Canada will boom when both these Governments and the Federal Liberals are gone.

This petition will do nothing, we are screwed, worst thing is that toronto will vote her in again, and the rest of Ontario will die off.

This is how the fuck the sheeple in Europe – they hide the VAT and slowly raise it over and over.

I’d like to see an argument for how taxation will stop the climate from changing.

This would only work in ONT. or QUE. because of all the left wing loons.

Dirty corrupted disgusting Liberals! And the Conservatives are towing the line as well. What a bunch of sniveling cowards!

At the turn of the Millenium, who would have predicted that Ontario and Alberta, the number one and two economic engines of the time would join the Maritimes as basket cases before a decade and a half passed. And that Saskatchewan would be the pillar along with interior and North BC.
