Ontario’s Green Energy Act got knocked around the political ring as the leaders of the province’s big three parties squared off in tonight’s televised debate ahead of the Oct. 6 election.
“It’s quite clear that the Green Energy Act has been a failure,” Laforet said. “It’s going to be critical that we don’t allow the this act to continue its run.”
During the debate, Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty defended his green energy plan, which he said David Suzuki endorses.
Responding to a question about helping new graduates find work, McGuinty said investing in clean energy technologies creates new jobs.
“I want Ontario to be the best in green energy,” he said.
Hudak disagreed. He said the Green Energy Act is killing jobs.
“Your jobs plan has been a failure,” he said. “Your green energy plan is nothing more than a shell game.”
“I can’t figure out from one day to the next where Ms. Horwath stands on clean energy,” McGuinty said.
