Dalton announced plans to cancel billions of dollars allocated to infrastructure projects to build new highways, repair roads and bridges, and effectively kill thousands of construction jobs.  He plans to sacrifice the essential Infrastructure Plan while forging ahead with his untenable renewable energy plan for Ontario.  Dalton can’t afford to repair our roads yet he can waste $14 billion on foreign built wind turbines that produce negligible electricity.  He pursues an unaffordable energy policy despite scathing  criticism from the Auditor General about soaring electricity   costs, job losses and the fact that Ontario has an energy surplus.

Dalton’s benefactors are coming to Toronto to the FIT Forum.  The multinational wind energy companies benefiting from excessive Liberal government subsidies and lax regulation will be at the Feed’in Trough (FIT), with their plans to transform the landscape, the community vibrancy and homes of rural Ontario into an immense wind ghetto.    

In response, Rural Ontario is planning a massive protest. 

The Wind Industry Barons are blowing into Toronto for the Ontario Feed In Tariff Forum April 3 & 4th  at the Metro Convention Center, 255 front Street West.

Please mark your calendars, and inform your neighbours.    We want as many people as possible – thousands!

Start thinking about messages & slogans for your signs and be creative.  Identify which part of Ontario you are from.  Arrange a bus or use public transit, subways, Go trains to Union Station.  Let’s bring our message to Dalton’s Liberals! See you there.

From the main lobby of Union Station (look for signs to railway and GoTrain station to get to main lobby), exit at Front Street, go west (left) on Front St. past York St.  and Lower Simcoe St.  Simcoe Park is about 300 meters further west right next to the CBC building on the north side of Front St.
