TORONTO, Oct. 8 /CNW/ -
October 8, 1898: A rivalry is born as McGill beats Queen's 3-2 in the
first Canadian Intercollegiate football game.
October 8, 1992: The Ottawa Senators beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-3 at
the Civic Centre in the first regular season NHL game for a Senators team in
And now... Dalton McGuinty's Do-Over:
In 2003, Dalton McGuinty promised to cut "electricity consumption by
at least 5% by 2007."
After four years of a Dalton McGuinty government - no matter how you
cut it - this is a broken promise.
Annual consumption of electricity has decreased a mere 0.6% from 2003
to 2006, according to the Independent Electricity System Operator
But when you compare peak demand levels - electricity usage has
actually increased by more than 6% - from a peak of 25,414 Megawatts
on August 13, 2002 to 27,005 Megawatts on August 1, 2006.
Further still, 17 of the top 20 days for peak demand have occurred
since Dalton McGuinty came to office.
Now it's 2007 and Dalton McGuinty is promising to double
conservation. How do you double nothing?
If you couldn't believe him in 2003 why would you believe him now?
