I don’t normally retweet anything and this is at the risk of being very politically incorrect (in my circles) but I think it’s important to speak out against this new climate change sinkhole of a plan from the Ontario Liberals. We do not want a repeat of the disastrous Green Energy Act. There are good and bad investments in environmental protection spending by government. To pull one recent example of something reasonable, here’s a recently announced federal government investment in ocean and freshwater science. By contrast, the Ontario climate change plan looks ludicrous.
The $7b spending is bad enough but worst part is the Maoist central planning https://t.co/gVGAOuV53m

Ross McKitrick is on the money in his ongoing analysis of spending on climate issues.
Update: Globe and Mail chimed in a week later echoing the same sentiment again. Apparently Ontario’s Auditor General estimates we’ll pay $170-billion extra in Green Energy Act premiums between 2006 and 2032, not even including these latest ideas. Can you imagine what we could do for our forests, wildlife, waterways, and fisheries, with that kind of money? Sad.
