Canadian Club: Wind Industry Furious: Ontario Rips Up 750 Wind Power Contracts

Proving, yet again, that without punitive mandates, ludicrous targets and massive subsidies the wind industry would disappear in a heartbeat, the decision to cancel hundreds of government contracts with wind power developers in Ontario has left rent seekers furious, and wondering where their next meal might come from?
