Gravely concerned with energy privatization in Ontario
Ontarians are paying private corporations to privatize our energy.
Yet, private energy providers have cut many of our fellow citizens from accessing energy, leaving them behind in the dark and in the cold. People have been brought down to the level where they are begging for some energy in welfare offices.
Private energy has taken away from us our ability to decide as a community about the future of our energy, a life – or- extinction issue in the times of global warming.
Canada is apparently in consultation with major energy companies to open up the arctic for deep sea oil well exploitation, by "relaxing" our environmental safeguards and regulations. I haven't even heard of this prior to this column in the globe, and i read several papers a day. Not surprising, like the europe trade agreement, SPP, etc.
from the globe:
This week 300 protesters traveled to Queen's Park to voice their concerns over industrial wind projects. These people were dismissed as Not-In-My-Back-Yarders... maybe crazy. Because who in their right mind would say wind turbines are not green? It's a given... isn't it?
Lately, I have been attending kitchen-table meetings in regards to industrial wind turbines and I'm no longer convinced that wind turbines are "green" bullet we've been waiting for.
