No Wonder Urban Ontarians are Clueless About our Plight.

Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press reported this today…

“Local governments will have more say over wind and solar energy projects, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Monday after a handful of politicians walked out on his speech to the Rural Ontario Municipalities Association.

“I cannot help but observe, as you did, that some folks left when I took my position here at the podium,” McGuinty told the audience of local politicians from across the province.

“I know it’s about clean energy. I support clean energy, I support the tens of thousands of jobs that it creates. I knew this could happen, but I came anyways.”


Apparently Mr. Leslie thinks that 100 municipal councillors is a mere ‘handful’.  Thanks a lot Keith. Great way to minimize the concerns and problems faced by rural Ontarians.  Some families are in the fight of their lives and you give them no more consideration than a dead bug on your windshield.   It’s no wonder that urban Ontarians are totally oblivious to our cause, when we get downplayed like this.

Why not take the time to voice your displeasure at this clearly biased reporting and leave a comment under this article?  It will just take a moment, but will let them know we are a force to be reckoned with.

    What makes anyone think that McGuinty will follow through with the promise of allowing municipalities more say. The premier is incapable of providing Ontarians with the truth as it pertains to his motives.
