I have been a bit behind in my reading. I see the McGuinty Government is again working against the creation of jobs in Ontario's manufacturing sector. The Zenn car has been regulated out of the market so we loose jobs in Ontario. The decision is also an environmental green industry disaster. An opportunity to be a world automotive leader has been lost missed! At the same time we give my tax dollars to over incompetent CEOs to run crumbling enviromentally poor companies.
I was at an investment conference on the weekend. The main gist was invest in infrastructure like water projects. The following statistics was shared with us: 97% of the world's water is in the oceans, 3% of the world's is fresh most of which is in the ice caps and of the remainder of the 3% ,75% is polluted. As fresh water becomes our most important resource our government has forced through legislative changes to weaken water protection. under the ammendments to the Navigatable water Protection Act they have given the environment minister the right to stop or bypass environmental assessments. This is a moral crime as we need stronger protection of our fresh water not less.
