Damned if, roughly a week later, I don't reach into my mailbox to find a letter from Mr McGuinty. Not only do I appreciate just the basic gesture, but particularly so because it wasn't a form letter. It was specific to my comments and questions.
My overwhelming laziness prevents me from typing out the whole thing, but the meat of it is:
We are on track to achieving our goal of 10% of Ontario's generation coming from renewable sources by 2010.Okay, so I made up that last part.
The projects, which include eight new wind farms and a waterpower project, will spur economic development in the renewable energy sector and will bring an estimated $2 billion in new investment to Ontario.
Keep up the great work, you sexy bastard! Peace out!
I have to admit that I'm not overwhelmed by a 10% mark, however I view it like someone trying to lose weight; to lose 100 pounds, you can't get there without going through the process of losing 10 pounds first. Hopefully 10% is just the start and once reached they can look towards the next 10%.
In any event, I'd be lying if I said I've been a huge of this guy, but this is a good way to earn points. I was pleased to receive a response specific to what I wrote (especially since at first glance I thought I was being called up for jury duty!).
