Liberals vote to keep nuke loophole

Ontario Clean Air Alliance: Jessica Fracassi

On Monday April 27th, Liberal members of the Ontario Legislature’s Committee on General Government voted down proposed amendments to the Green Energy Act put forward by the NDP’s Energy Critic, Peter Tabuns. These amendments would have eliminated special deals for nuclear projects by making it illegal for them to pass their capital cost overruns onto electricity consumers and taxpayers.

This means the government MPPs have voted to retain the biggest loophole in the Green Energy Act instead of acting in the spirit of the Act and ensuring a truly level playing field for renewable power projects.

Voting to retain special privileges for nuclear projects were Laurel Broten, Kuldip Kular, Bill Mauro, Carol Mitchell and (for one of two votes) Linda Jeffrey. Please contact these MPPs and ask them why they think nuclear power deserves better treatment than clean renewable power, especially in a Green Energy Act.
