The end of Ontario’s lifetime of economic progress…
The Financial Post, May 17, 2016
To get an idea of what Ontario could look like a couple of decades out under Liberal energy minister Glen Murray’s “climate action plan” — which was revealed in detail in Monday’s Globe and Mail — who better to rely on than the man himself, Glen Murray?
Back in 2008, when he chaired the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy, Murray — along with his acting CEO, Alex Wood, now executive director of the Ontario Climate Change Directorate — offered up a plan that looked remarkably similar to the new Liberal cabinet document. In fairness, the NRTEE document hardly offered the perniciously micro-managed prescriptions for people and businesses that Murray has graduated to now. And this new plan, billed by the Liberals as a “once-in-a-lifetime transformation” for Ontario’s economy, may also prove the end of Ontario’s lifetime of economic progress. In an era where assisted dying is the big thing with Liberals, this could be the first case where it’s tried on a province.
The leaked cabinet document, reportedly signed-off on by Premier Kathleen Wynne, lists a jaw-dropping 80 or so policies including: The eventual ban on heating new homes and buildings with natural gas, with only electric or geothermal being legal; $4 billion to be doled out by a “green bank,” funded by carbon taxes, to subsidize retrofits of buildings to get them off natural gas; the requirement that homes undergo an “energy-efficiency audit” before they can be sold; and a stack of rules, regulations and handouts to get an electric car into every two-car household within eight years, including rebates, free electric charging, and plug-in stations at every liquor store. Naturally, there will be billions more in traditional government-spending programs on public transit, bike paths, upgrades for schools and hospitals, and “research” funds and centres of climate excellence, not to mention new ethanol fuel standards that will gratify the Liberals’ top corporate donors in the biofuel lobby.

Why is everybody concerned with this. She is implementing the AGENDA 21 document signed by Canada to have a SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT,Social Justice/Economic Prosperity. Go online and read this document but I will give you a taste and you tell me what is happening.
1. ground too valuable to be owned by individuals so rural people and farmers must be moved back into the cities so that they can be controlled( this is why hydro rates in rural Ontario are over 100% higher and going up 100% in the future than the bills in the cites forcing people back to city life
2. Special deals with chosen corporations to get government grants/tax breaks and Eminent Domain powers to sustain the monopolies sanctioned by big government(look at the contracts with the wind turbines where they put them in your back door and only certain companies will be involved reguardless of what the citizens want!
3 Redistribution of wealth so all societies will become equal. National sovereignty is a social injustice along with the lack of universal health care for everyone
4.Get rid of non sustainable ways of life like ski runs /industry/dams and reservioirs/plowing of the soil/single family homes/logging/grazing of livestock/ forcing the people like cattle back into the cities
This was just a taste of the WYNNE government is working towards as she changes the lives of millions of ontarians through her GREEN ENERGY SCAM and that involves the natural gas also.
WAKE UP CITIZENS OF ONTARIO and forget the way of life that you knew or get together to stop this RUNAWAY TRAIN know as KATHRYN WYNNE and the liberal government that she controls and what Justin Trudeaue endorses
Give me your comments.

Wind has been declared a resource. The resources of the world have been mapped for corporations to profit from. People who are in the way will be relocated. The quality of life for people who live where these resources have been sited will be reduced to the point of non viability.
It’s happening around the globe.The Ontario government is ushering in this agenda and yet will not openly admit it.
If you care about rural Ontario you need to understand this agenda and elect only governments that will reverse the damage already done.
What the planet really needs now is for it’s inhabitants to deepen their relationship with the earth and to truly understand the interconnectivity of all species in nature.
We need a ‘rural renaissance’.

Its all in the Agenda 21 report like I have said before. Move the people back into the city where they can be controlled easier. This means what you can eat , what car you buy/where you live/ how much power you get to consume/how much money yu can make and how you should spend it by distribution of wealth all controlled by the liberal government.WAKE UP PEOPLE OF ONTARIO as the liberals intend to be in power for a long time.
