ONTARIO PC’S RE-AFFIRM COMMITMENT TO SCRAP GREEN ENERGY ACT
(Queen’s Park)- Ontario PC MPPs Lisa MacLeod (Nepean-Carleton) and Lisa Thompson (Huron Bruce) offered the following statement on the PC Plan to scrap the Green Energy Act:
“Ontario PC Party under Tim Hudak maintains its commitment to scrap the Green Energy Act.
“That means we would remove subsidies on wind and solar, we would restore locally based decision making and we would implement a moratorium on developments until health and environmental impacts are assessed.
“The Green Energy Act is disastrous for rural Ontarians who live near these intrusive developments and anyone paying a Hydro bill in Ontario is paying this $22 B boondoggle on their bills.
“Many people like Esther Wrightman of Middlesex County are relying on us to form a government and end this bad plan.
“The PC Party stands with Esther and everyone else negatively impacted by this disastrous plan.
“We stand with ratepayers.
“And we stand for a province that doesn’t subsidize expensive and unreliable power we don’t need at the expense of a prosperous Ontario.
