Ontario needs discussion on green energy

Ontario ratepayers deserve to know what the full costs and consequences of cancelling the Green Energy Act would be - and what other energy sources would be used to replace renewable power in this province. If cancelling the act means less clean energy, green jobs and more power from fossil fuels at a similar or higher price in the near future, it’s a bad deal for Ontarians in the long run.
