Disconnection: Another reality of Wynne energy "mistake"

Dec 8, 2016 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Think what it must be like to fall on hard times and have your hydro disconnected in your home?

How do you eat? Cook? Store food? If rural, draw water from your well. Bath or go #1 and #2?

What if you have kids in the house?

After soaring electricity bills have sent thousands into energy poverty due to Wynne Liberal mismanagement of the system, disconnection is common practice for Hydro One.

Until now. 

They have reversed their policy after a humiliating expose from Global News and decided to reconnect over 1400 homes for the winter, who until now, have been powerless.

Too bad it took this long for them to realize there are more humane ways to handle collecting the money this government extorts from us.  

And in most cases it is a problem that started with the changes to their billing system, and nothing to do with the customer.

As a result they have stopped the practice, for now, and are trying frantically to repair their extremely tarnished image.

The spokesperson we had on air from Hydro One alluded that they have hired new people since being privatized and this is a left over policy from another poorly run government program.

What does it say when even Hydro One passes the buck to the premier?

The growing disdain of the silent middle class majority

Dec 7, 2016 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

“Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!

Are we having a flashback to the U.S. presidential election campaign or perhaps the Trump victory tour afterwards?

No, how about a rally on the steps of the Alberta legislature where former immigration minister and federal Conservative candidate Chris Alexander was speaking.

When riling up the crowd over NDP premier Rachel Notley’s planned carbon tax, the crowd started chanting, “lock her up” Trump style.

Alexander did nothing to stop the chanting which has drawn scorn from his own party and as well as the official opposition.

Not surprisingly most are shaming him for his actions, reminding all you can’t lock someone up because you don’t like their policy, that’s democracy and what your vote is for.

I don’t support this action, it only undermines the credibility of any group.

But in throwing another conservative under the bus and ignoring the root causes of this growing pubic disdain, are we not repeating the same mistake Americans made last month that paved the way for Trumps rise to the White House?

This isn’t about race, religion, left or right.

This is about the silence majority middle class who are fed up with the status quo that continually ignores them.

Policians better take note, or fear the results we have seen in the U.K. and U.S.A.

How do we know Wynne cap & tade tax isn't a "mistake" too?

Dec 6, 2016 5:00 AM

A new survey out for the Auditor General says 89% of Ontarians want the Wynne Liberals to identify the cost of her cap & trade scheme on your bill line by line.

The mess that is our energy system wants nothing to do with that, instead choosing to bury it in the illusive bottomless pit called the delivery charge.

The Liberals say it will only add $5. to your monthly bill.

Remember Dalton McGuinty said his plan would only cost a cup of coffee?

The Auditor General says it’s more like an increase of 25%, that will have little effect in obtaining their goals and is anything but transparent.

Of course the Liberals want to keep you in the dark cold on the cost of their cap & trade tax, the more you don’t understand, the better for them.

Last month Kathleen Wynne cried in front of her flock that her green energy plan was a “mistake”.

Has she done anything to convince you her latest cap & trade shell game is any different?

OR will she be crying to us next year, ‘it was a “mistake” too’?

The real tragedy is, Justin Trudeau has the same people working on his plan.
