Examining Canada Revenue Agency Message Board › Power to Choose: This Saturday at Metro Hall
|A former member||
A year ago, Dalton McGuinty introduced an "Integrated Power Supply Plan" that says what Ontario will do to get its electricity for the next 20 years and beyond.
You would expect that an 80 billion dollar plan (40 billion dollars just for nuclear plants) would have been the result of careful public consultations.
These consultations did not happen. So Adriana decided that we ought to hold the public consultations anyway.
The result is Power to Choose: A Citizen's Forum on Ontario's Energy Future. Power to Choose is a non-partisan event sponsored by Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund and EvolutionGreen.
Though the speaker's schedule is now full (over 40 speakers through the course of the day), there's still plenty of opportunity to be heard in discussion periods, video-recorded deputations, an alternate day, an overflow room, or written submissions.
And of course many will come just to listen and learn -- please attend for all or part of the day.
It's all day, this Saturday, at Metro Hall:
Power to Choose
Saturday, 2007 Jun 23, 9 am - 5:30 pm
Metro Hall, 55 John Street, room 308/309
(at King & John, 3 blocks west of University,
from the St Andrew subway stop)

If you don't want to present, don't worry about registration. If you do want to present, don't worry that the deadline is passed: they'll either squeeze you in or find some other way to accommodate.
The proceedings of this forum will be publicized in various ways. For example, the Integrated Power Supply Plan will be subject to Ontario Energy Board hearings, which are the closest thing we'll have to an environmental assessment. The Power to Choose deputations will be publicized in advance of these crucial Ontario Energy Board hearings.
Premier Dalton McGuinty, Energy Minister Dwight Duncan, Environment Minister Laurel Broten and Health Minister George Smitherman will all be there. Or reasonable facsimiles. You should be there too. See you this Saturday.
Excuse me now, I've got to go trim the foamboard on the reasonable facsimiles.
