Eight Nobel peace laureates called the Green Energy Act “the single most effective piece of legislation promoting renewable energy in North America.”
It’s unfortunate that PC Leader Tim Hudak is threatening to dismantle the GEA if he gets elected — all for short-term political gain when thousands of good jobs and a clean- energy economy are at stake. The worst part is Mr. Hudak is failing to address what he would do instead. Expensive, volatile nuclear? Dirty coal?

All of the other leaders are committing to progress for clean energy, but PC Leader Tim Hudak is promising to sacrifice the thousands of good jobs created by the Green Energy Act and make Ontario more reliant on dirty, dangerous forms of power.
Any politician who threatens to scrap thousands of automotive jobs would be laughed out of office.
Why should our reaction be any different now that many of Ontario’s hard-working men and women who used to make auto parts are now building solar panels and turbines?
