McGuinty promises action on the environment...

McGuinty aims to create thousands of 'Green jobs'

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday a proposed Green Energy act would help create more than 50,000 new jobs over the next three years...

According to McGuinty the bill would help the government ensure our province's future by:
  • Supporting and expanding economic investment, thus building a stronger, greener economy with an estimated 50,000-plus direct and indirect jobs over the next three years
  • Expanding Ontario's use of clean and renewable sources of energy.
  • Better protecting our environment and combating climate change.
Considering McGuinty's move last year to place most of our eggs in the multi-billion dollar nuclear basket, we'll have to see the actual content of this Green Energy Act before making any judgments.
