Ontario NDP vs. the environment

Hard hitting piece from the David Suzuki foundation on the NDP playing political games with the environment:

"the NDP allowed politics to rule over good policy...the NDP platform mentions a home retrofit program that targets energy efficiency. The cost of that program? Who knows?...What about new investment in building transit infrastructure that builds on Ontario's existing transit plan? Not in there."


With Ontario's economy turning the corning and creating jobs while helping the environment, it is disappointing that the NDP would scheme with Tim Hudak to kill Ontario jobs.

I look forward to the Foundation's critique of the Ontario Liberal Party's platform. Given that the party supports new nuclear power plants, it should make for fascinating reading. I hope you can give the critique the same airing as you've given this.

Here is that critique you asked for:

"I’m offering an endorsement of what Mr. McGuinty has done, absolutely. This is a great plan. Any party would be foolish to talk about abandoning it"
