Tom Adams Calls for Electricity Project Moratorium Now

I second that e-motion

All major electricity projects in Ontario that can be delayed without severe penalty must be stopped immediately.
Moratorium now.
If McGuinty has a shred of concern about the future of our province left in him, he will use the vast executive powers he has granted himself, using those power to bring down a sweeping moratorium on the spending of any more money or entering into any more commitments."
Ontario’s official electricity cover-ups have been so deep and pervasive, that we do not know where we stand. Consider that we don’t have an official forecast for what we will pay for electricity next year or the year after that. We don’t know how much we must pay for big, big commitments already carved in stone — like the Oakville and Mississauga gas plants. With McGuinty’s decision to prorogue, the only investigation in town is Gas Busters
Those plants had potential value to consumers located in the Western GTA. Located on the periphery of the grid, those plants have almost zero value to consumers, yet they will impose billions of dollars of cost over time. If we knew how many billions, we wouldn’t need the Gas Busters series.
Moratorium now.
