Ontario’s Liberal Government Stares Down Open Revolt Over Insane Wind Power Policy

As it goes in South Australia, so goes Ontario. STT has been fairly well occupied over the last few weeks in detailing the debacle Downunder, but it appears that, for all the same reasons, power consumers (read voters) in Ontario are just as furious as those unfortunates who hang their hats in South Australia: both […]
