Ontario Premier threatens opponents of new (green) energy projects
I recently read an unsettling report of an apparently contradictory move by the provincial government of Ontario to force the development of so-called green energy developments in the province of Ontario.
While promoting his Green Energy Act, Ontario Premier, Dalton McGuinty, made it clear that he will no longer accept "Not In My Backyard" (also known as NIMBY) arguments from opponents of new green or renewable energy developments. So long as "safety" and "environmental" concerns are addressed, he will not stand for opposition to new energy generation projects.
