Why doesn't anyone think McQuinty isn't doing anything for the enviro? Light Rail, pesticides ban, Greenbelt, Places to Grow Act, Shared Air Summits, emissions regulations for smog starting 2010 and again tougher standards in 2015.

Ryan mentioned in another blog "If Ontario charged a market rate for electricity instead of fixing the price at 5.7 cents / kilowatt-hour, people would voluntarily invest in efficiency and conservation and the government wouldn't feel the need to require energy audits.

As it stands, electricity is so artificially cheap that it's nothing to leave your air conditioner running in your 3,000 square foot house while you're at work.

This is a case of government intervention to solve a problem caused by government intervention."

Well Horwath wants to lower Ontario hydro costs, making them even more artificially low. Is this pro-environmental or pro-votes. A la professional politician. Making policy to get elected. Or she doesn't understand issues, either way.
