Canada Live takes a look back at the year 2012
Canada Live November 4th 2012
On this edition we discuss many topics of concern to Canadians. Harper and the China trade agreement, David Suzuki, Global Warming, International Soil Day and the Ontario Liberal Leadership Race Between Glen Murray and Kathleen Wynne. Our discussion on the Liberal leadership race begins at the 30 minute mark of the show.
A case of high treason as Stephen Harper and Paul Martin declare a loss of Canadian sovereignty
Back in Dec of 2009 I posted the story below. They said they needed a “Pearl Harbour” and they delivered. The Gulf oil spill, brought to you by everything that is evil on this planet. The Gulf oil spill is just one more in a long line of False Flags.
Is this great news or what?
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty and BC Premier Gordon Campbell of BC are racing to see who can bankrupt their Province first.
Turn this race into a CBC (Communist Broadcasting Corp.) reality show.
David Suzuki, Al Gore and Maurice Strong could be the judges.
I smell a hit series in the making – Go for it CBC.
As creator of the series idea – I expect payment for the idea and a percentage of any dollars generated from the series and syndication.

Toronto and Ottawa — From Thursday’s Globe and Mail
The Ontario government will announce today that it is awarding just over $8-billion in renewable energy projects to dozens of companies, making it the biggest investment of its kind in Canadian history.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is locked in a heated race with British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell for leadership in the burgeoning market for green-energy investments. And Mr. Campbell is manoeuvring to recapture the lead by rolling out legislation as early as next month.
The total value of the renewable energy projects to be announced today eclipses the $7-billion deal the McGuinty government signed in January with a consortium led by South Korean industrial giant Samsung Group. This time around, the government is awarding contracts to entities ranging from first nations communities to major corporations from overseas, the United States and across Canada to develop wind, solar and run-of-river hydro projects, sources familiar with the deal said.
Energy Minister Brad Duguid was to be at Durham College in Whitby, Ont., this morning to announce that the province is awarding its first major contracts under the so-called feed-in-tariff program – FIT for short – which pays premium prices for renewable power.
The companies will receive a fixed price over 20 years for the electricity they produce – 13.5 cents a kilowatt hour for on-shore wind farms and up to 80.2 cents for solar power. These contracts with green power producers are well above the market price of 3.44 cents a kilowatt hour for electricity in Ontario and are leading to higher hydro bills for consumers.
The Ontario Power Authority, the government agency that runs the program, has received more than 1,000 applications from companies, the sources said. The projects will create thousands of jobs, they said.
Brookfield Renewable Power, is among those hoping for good news today.
Brookfield has several projects under development in Ontario, including two totalling 213 megawatts of capacity in Essex County on the shores of Lake Erie, and a 100-megawatt plant near the Northern Ontario town of Marathon.
NextEra Energy Resources, the renewable energy arm of FPL Group that also owns Florida Power & Light, also applied for several projects under FIT and had high hopes for substantial growth in the province. The company applied for about 600 megawatts of wind projects.
Mike O’Sullivan, senior vice-president of development at NextEra, said FIT was such a well-designed program that it “will bring in all shades and colours of money from all parts of the world.”
He said if Ontario executes the FIT program properly, it could end up as one of the top five or 10 markets for renewable power in North America, among the 60 states and provinces.
Editor: The UK is calling for more coal and nuclear.
But here in Ontario, Dalton McGuinty and George Smitherman just keep on jambing up the wind farms even though anyone with an ounce of sense should know better.
Listen up Dalton and George, it’s over, everyone but you two seen to get the picture.
Quit wasting the taxpayers money! CO2 doesn’t cause global warming.
Get your act together or resign!
The UK must invest more in nuclear and clean coal energy and put less emphasis on wind power if it wants a secure low-carbon future, business leaders say.
The CBI says government energy policy is “disjointed” and it is urging a “more balanced” energy mix.
The current approach means the UK might miss climate change targets, it added.
The government said putting in place a balanced mix of renewables, new nuclear and cleaner fossil fuels was at the heart of its energy policy.
But the CBI is calling for more action.
“The government’s disjointed approach is deterring the private sector investment needed to get our energy system up to scratch, bolster security and cut emissions,” said CBI deputy director general John Cridland.
“While we have generous subsidies for wind power, we urgently need the national planning statements needed to build new nuclear plants.
“If we carry on like this we will end up putting too many of our energy eggs in one basket.”
When are the politicians going to stop listening to the Green Freaks?
The buses have turned out to be a colossal waste of taxpayers money, just like the wind farms will prove to be.
Did the politicians ask a mechanic before they ordered the buses?
Did they let the engineers evaluate the wind energy idea before they went ahead?
Or did they listen to the rhetoric of people like Al Gore and David Suzuki.
I’d put my money on the latter.
Billions of taxpayer dollars are being wasted chasing the C02 boogie man.
It’s time to demand that your tax dollars go where they belong. Politicians continue to chase the boogie man while our health care,education,farm and manufacturing sectors all continue to suffer from underfunding.
This must stop now!
A perfectly good diesel bus costs $500,000. Instead, the city bought hybrid electric/diesel buses at $700,000 each.
Why? Because the only way Ottawa would give it the $300 million to buy the buses was if it bought “alternative fuel” vehicles. Naturally it complied. The only problem: the buses suck. They don’t save much fuel, and the batteries keep going kaput, requiring expensive towing operations by emission-spewing conventional vehicles.
So, in the name of environmental purity the federal government induced the city of Toronto to buy lousy buses at great expense, that don’t work well and don’t really save much in the way of fuel consumption.
Many of the Toronto Transit Commission’s nearly 500 diesel-electric hybrid buses have seen their rooftop lead-acid batteries fail after just 1½ years on the roads.
A handful of buses have even conked out mid-route, leaving passengers at the curb, TTC officials acknowledged.
It is quite unfortunate that a man like Mr. Carr, former CEO of the Ontario Power Authority, who has known for a long time, the problems with wind energy, declined to step forward until now.
Many families in the province have had their lives ruined while he and his colleagues remained silent.
That said, maybe his words will encourage others to step forward.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who refused, to shut up, lay down or go away. Be proud of the fight you have, and continue to wage. Truth and justice are always worth the effort.
May other citizens learn from your example.
Jan Carr, former OPA CEO, will now tell you exactly what we have been saying for years.
Thanks for coming forward Mr. Carr, and welcome aboard the truth train.
Mr. Carr’s letter to the Globe and Mail.
Toronto — My wife suggested Murray Campbell’s use of “old” in “dumb old utility guys” should be my basis for a complaint to a human rights tribunal (‘Dougs’ Take Warning: Curious George Is Keen On Green – Sept. 25), as the former CEO of the Ontario Power Authority.
Let the facts speak for themselves. The OECD’s International Energy Agency and the websites of the European utilities themselves say it all. In spite of hype about their innovation in renewable energy, both Germany and Denmark derive half of their electricity from coal-fired stations. As its nuclear generating stations reach the end of their design-lives, Germany will have to decide between building new coal-fired generation (it already has 10 times the amount that Ontario has) and abandoning its no-new-nuclear policy. With a quarter of its supply coming from renewables and more on the way, Ontario’s electricity is already considerably greener than Germany’s and soon will take league leadership from Denmark.
Then check electricity prices. Germans pay double and Danes triple what Ontarians do.

Today at noon, Ontario’s 672MW’s of wind were producing 32MW’s
I don’t know why, but I find this rather amusing. I get a lot of visits from different govt. agencies but the thought of the Canadian Space Agency sitting around watching a wind turbine explode, cracks me up.
The CBC, both Toronto and Montreal were on my blog today, maybe they could get together with the Space Agency and make a short documentary on the subject.
