Liberals’ vow of green jobs misses mark

Lorrie Goldstein — QMI Agency — April 14, 2012

I have a business proposition for anyone who still believes Dalton McGuinty will create 50,000 green energy jobs by the end of this year, as he promised in 2009 when he introduced his Green Energy Act.

My proposition is I have some ocean front property in Alberta I’d like to sell you.

In the real world, not even McGuinty’s own government is pretending this promise is based in reality anymore.

Last week, on April 12, Ontario’s energy ministry announced a new “Clean Energy Economic Development Strategy,” including a new government task force and trade missions to Asia, the Middle East and U.S.

The ministry said this will “create even more jobs in the clean energy sector,” while boasting “Ontario’s green energy strategy has created over 20,000 jobs and is on track to create 50,000 jobs.” Notice there’s no longer any time frame given on when those 50,000 jobs will be created.
