Here is another example of a Wynne Liberal green policy that wasn’t thought through.
Great intention, but no accountability of your money or due diligence.
For the past 6 years the Liberals have doled out over $39 million trying to get you to buy electric cars that most can’t afford.
It’s perfectly understandable that incentives are needed if you’re going to try to change people’s habits.
But don’t you have to question who the incentives will really benefit?
For example, the starting price for a green electric/hybrid vehicle is around $30 grand for a puddle jumper.
And over $14 million of the government money spent was on cars that were over $70,000.
After a few bought million dollar Porsche 918 Spyders the government realised that the wealthy do not need subsidies and cut the program to cars costing under $150,000.
Can you afford that in your driveway?
I can see offering incentives to those who need them….
But as the president of the Canadians Tax Payers Federation said, “If you can afford a $100,000 car, you don’t need a subsidy from people who earn less than that in a year.”

Should police be allowed to ask anyone anything, at any time?
