Too cold to go out and do anything today? Follow this little maze of agency connections for a little amusement, as created by Parker Gallant.
From the CanWEA page here: http://windformycommunity.ca/
Click on “Health” at the top to go to: http://windfacts.ca/your-health
Go to “Did you know” which has this question: The Ontario Ministry of Environment estimates that shutting down coal will reduce health care costs by $3 billion annually” and you will see a link to:
OCCCAE – Facts and Myths Debunked and click on that link which takes you to:
http://www.occcae.org/archive_oct2011/facts-and-myths-debunked.php which has a full page of complete bunk! In that site you will find all kinds of claims as to members, etc., but no names of anyone connected with the site.
Doing a Google search on “Ontario Citizens’ Coalition for Clean Affordable Energy” leads you to the following: http://www.ontario-sea.org/Page.asp?PageID=122&ContentID=4259 where you find that the creator of OCCCAE is Michel Fortin and he is now the new “Director of Strategy and Member Services” at OSEA. Fortin’s bio indicates he is a York Universitygrad (ditto for Stevens the ED of OSEA) who took “environmental sciences” just like Stevens.
Just a little incestuous! Sure would like to know where OSEA gets all its money!
If you want to donate to OCCCAE you send your cheque to:
