Saving EnerGuide

Thanks to Maple Leaf Politics for the link to this story about Natural Resources Minister from Quebec, Pierre Corbeil, and his effort to save the EnerGuide Program at a meeting in Regina on May 24.

Now this is interesting. The program is still on the federal government's website. And Quebec's PM, Jean Charest and the Harper are great buds. Makes me wonder if pulling this one off might help the Harper save face in Quebec and the rest of the country.

Environmental organizations have called for action, insisting the Harper reverse this cut. But would he do so at the expense of the Alberta oil industry and those who paved his way to 24 Sussex?

Then again, one can't help but wonder if this meeting will be a nuclear energy love-fest. After all, the nuke-loving Australian PM, John Howard, recently met with the Harper. Oh, these wealthy white males!

We'll see what transpires.

Provincial and Municipal governments will need to fill the void.

Then I'll hope we'll see a strong environmental plank in your campaign for City Council, Chad.

Some include residential solar power generation, or roof top panels to reduce electrical use and use of coal. Also, I would like to create an electrical utility to use the natural gas generated by the landfill. Instead of just burning it off. Would also lower dependency on coal.
email, if you wish to discuss more or have any ideas.
