Minister Duguid's interview: "Green Energy is good for Ontarians and for Ontario"

Yesterday, Brad Duguid Ontario Minister of Energy did more than defend the Green Energy Act. Interviewed by Kristopher Stevens, Executive Director Ontario Sustainable Energy Association, Minister Duguid drew a future of Ontario with four healths that matter:

  • A healthy environment for our children as coal burning power stations are phased out;
  • A healthy electricity system that has not suffered brownouts nor blackouts nor needed large imports of high priced power this year - despite the record heat wave;
  • A healthy jobs market that has already bounced back from the recession, thanks in large part to 20,000 new jobs in clean energy - the rest of the economy remains fragile;
  • A healthy climate for investment - . Twenty billion dollars have already been invested in the new green economy in Ontario.
