Niagara West MPP Sam Oosterhoff

Queen’s Park Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West was assured by the Hon. Greg Rickford, Minister for Energy, Northern Development and Mines today that Ontarians would no longer receive energy projects they did not want and did not need.

The statement came as a response to Oosterhoff who asked the Minister how repealing the Green Energy Act would protect his constituents from needless energy projects.

“In my beautiful riding of Niagara West, numerous wind turbines scar the landscape” said Oosterhoff. “It angers the members of my community because they know these turbines produce energy we don’t need.”

The Minister of Energy agreed that it was shameful how much the turbines—which were forcefully placed in communities who did not want them—cost the people of Ontario.

“The Liberals ignored the people in these communities while their friends in the energy sector got rich on these bad contracts” he said. “We are giving the power back to the people by repealing the Green Energy Act.”

The Minister assured Oosterhoff that the days of a “Liberal’s tax and spend buffet” were over, and that the PC Government would “slim down.”
