Michael Ignatieff gets it – nuclear subsidies are a bad idea
Last night, Michael Ignatieff, leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, held an Open Mike town hall meeting where he invited the public to raise issues and concerns with him. I was there to ask him if he thought federal taxpayers across the country should pay for 2 new nuclear reactors in Ontario, when lower cost options to meet our electricity needs are available.
To his credit, Mr. Ignatieff responded with a resounding “No” to subsidies!
Mr. Ignatieff understands that federal taxpayer subsidies for new nuclear reactors make no sense. Please send a brief email to Mr. Ignatieff thanking him for trying to protect us from yet more debt charges on our electricity bills. No more nuclear bail outs!
