Default Suspicious Timing: McGuinty Scraps Offshore Wind Projects in

I'm sure all of you have heard about the ongoing turmoil playing out in Egypt. One of the largest and most significant events to take place in a very long time, this not only is a victory for the citizens of Egypt, but a clear cut victory for the ideals of freedom and democracy. And as you also probably have noticed, the coverage in the media has been unprecedented, as one would expect.

Sooo, if you're like me you have probably been thinking to yourself, "when will the first really negative government announcement get sneaked in amongst the chaos, to be snuffed out by a larger, more explosive story." Well it's here! The Ontario government announced yet another one of their famous flip flops on Friday. The offshore wind projects that they have been sinking millions into, and are to help replace coal by 2014 which is being phased out, has been canceled until further notice.

This is just another setback in a long line of major setbacks for green energy in Ontario, costing us the tax payers millions. Most of these problems are also frustrating in the fact that they are not happening for good rational reasons, but more for strategic political ones, which makes this announcement on one of the heaviest news days in Egypt not so surprising.
