Energy Poverty – Report from Parliament, October 2016

All political parties are pushing nation toward 3rd world status as they implement UN/Globalist/Corporate agendas upon the people. This must stop NOW!

To say I’m disgusted by lying politicians is an understatement. Fact is all political parties are pushing the UN/Globalist/Corporate agendas. When in power they move the UN/Globalist/Corporate agendas. When not in power they bitch and complain about the very thing they were doing while in power. For Gallant to bitch about the Liberals is akin to her bitching about her own party. Conservative PM Brian Mulroney is the one who signed on to UN Agenda 21. I ran in the 2007 Ont. Provincial election as an Independent candidate (a real eye opener.) John Tory, leader of the Ont. Conservative party at the time, now mayor of Toronto, stated clearly in his policy platform. If elected the Conservatives will install more wind turbines than the Liberals.

Energy Poverty Means Pre-Paying – Report from Parliament, October 2016

From the office of Cheryl Gallant, Conservative MP

Federal Agency Measurement Canada is preparing to finalize approval for “pre-pay” hydro meters. This was only a matter of time since the province installed so-called “smart meters” in people’s homes.

To picture a pre-payment electricity meter, just think of a parking meter that you load with money in order to park a vehicle. These are popular in third-world countries, particularly where poor people have no access to credit. They enable the power utilities to deny access to a basic necessity without actually having to pull the plug if customers have trouble with bills. It forces the poor household to self-disconnect.

Energy poverty, defined as households that spend more than 10 percent of their income on home energy, affects about one million households in Canada. In Ontario, the lowest income group spends on average 12 or more percent of their income on utilities, while the average Ontarian spends only 4 per cent.

Energy poverty is prevalent among certain types of households, including those with single residents, seniors, children or young adults, renters, and those with a female primary bill-payer. Low-income families and individuals are being forced to choose between heating their homes, buying groceries or paying the rent as the result of increasing utility prices. For many, it is literally a choice between eating and heating.

Canadians still have an opportunity to withhold their “implied consent” to poverty meters. While the federal government has set a January 1st 2017 implementation date for its new policy, you are invited to provide me your thoughts on pre-payment electricity meters. Remember, ‘no comment’ is considered by this government to be a “yes.”

The federal government deadline for submissions is October 30, 2016.
