The Wynne Liberals new ‘Climate Change Action Plan’ is their version of the NDP’s ‘Leap Manifesto’.
You may remember during the last NDP federal convention where they turfed out leader Thomas Mulcair in favour of a return to their roots.
That included praising the Leap Manifesto which wants to restructure the Canadian economy and end the use of fossil fuels ASAP.
Quickly NDPers defensively clarified it was a discussion, not policy, as their party’s success depends on moving towards the centre, (not farther to the left).
The provincial Wynne Liberals are following the federal lead in driving the fringe NDP even farther to the left.
With Wynnes new Climate Change Action Plan the Liberals are sounding more NDP than the NDP!
The headline in the Toronto Star from the leaked report says, “Curbing climate change in Ontario will cost you $13 a month.”
Really? How can that be when they want all new homes by 2030 to have electric heat?
Who could possibly afford that considering the price of electricity now? And it’s only going up.
This after they have spent the last 30 years converting us to clean natural gas.
Honestly, Wynne’s heart is in the right place, but she has lost her way.
This is about striking a balance and achieving the goal over time.
Not becoming dependent on one energy, electricity, which the government uses to generate its revenue in their never ending shell game of fiscal irresponsibility.
