Randy your survey stinks, just like the Conservative Party that you are a member of. Get used to it. You have another three years at least of not being the government if you don’t shoot yourself in the foot first with an unregistered long gun.

Garbage in. Garbage out.

I guess you’ll ‘get back to me’ about the cost of the wind farm. If you ask me the cost of that new natural gas generation plant is pretty giant. Here’s a snip-it from The Financial Post:

“It’s hard for one to choose the lesser of two evils from the saga of additional costs arising from moving the site of TransCanada Energy’s 900-megawatt natural gas-fired generation station from Oakville, Ont., to the site of Ontario Power Generation’s (OPG) Lennox Generating Station: whether ignorance or intentional distortions are at play.

In that Ontario electricity ratepayer dollars — and a lot of them – are involved, the process deserves transparency, investigation and explanation of a number of complex issues and calculations to check assertions made and to determine costs not documented. I assert that additional costs to move the plant will exceed $733-million – much, much more than the $40-million presented by the Ontario government."

Dear Mr Hillier.

Thank you for addressing my concern it appears that this way is the best way to get your response as I have asked for your help WITH an issue with the green energy bill and was told.you would get back to me (regarding solar farm project in Stone Mills township and the company using dynamite within 30 meters.of residence and a well) and we are still waiting on your call sir. However that point is moot as the barns have been constructed for nearly a year now.

I like Mr. Morris did not really understand how you worded your survey so as a person could answer the questions to represent how they felt about the topic it’s like asking what your favourite colour is and giving blue and blue as an answer.

Thank You again for your response.

Chris- I’m sorry that you don’t care to understand or consider what your friends and neighbours find important. But your sour tunes won’t alter my commitment to listening to my constituents and being open with them.

Typical of partisans such as Chris & Ted- Blame the messenger for first asking and caring what my constituents views are and secondly for being open and transparent with sharing the results.

IF the Green Energy Act had been a Mr Harper, Mr Hudak or Mr Harris initiative the PC party wouldn’t have even wasted their time on such a survey – everyone likes Electricity but nobody wants to be responsible for creating it – you Mr. Hillier are by far the worst Minister of Provincial Parliament to have ever represented this riding as you work for your party and not for your constituants.
