Where could this latest Trillium Power “entitlement” fiasco leave Ontario taxpayers? Another $2 billion in the hole that’s where. Talk about Liberal mismanagement!
First, the McGuinty Liberals wasted a billion on eHealth. Next, the McGuinty Liberals wasted a billion on Ornge. Then the McGuinty/Wynne Liberals wasted a billion on cancelling two gas plants — and for primarily partisan reasons.
Now we are faced with the Wynn/Horwath Liberals being responsible for throwing away another possible $2 billion. And, make no mistake about it, Kathleen Wynne was in the Cabinet of Dalton McGuinty when Trillium would have signed their contracts — giving Trillium the impression that it was up to them as how many wind turbines they erected.
I mean, what kind of contract is that? For details for this potential fiasco, check out Don Butler’s news column in the Ottawa Citizen. Whatever the reasons for allowing the partial appeal, I certainly hope Trillium does not succeed.
I mean, think about it. We are currently paying wind power companies not to produce and Trillium thinks the suspension was aimed at them alone?
Without a doubt, another reason to get rid of the Wynne/Horwath government.
