Our last blog, A Ray of Hope, suggested that the Federal Government might become active on renewable energy after two years of indifference. What is the basis for this optimism?
First, the Ontario Liberals, who have been very active in promoting renewable energy, now have a comfortable four-year mandate. The Ontario Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Glenn Murray, understands the importance and challenges of renewable energy better than any Federal Minister.
Secondly, Quebec, a Province where a great majority of people have constantly supported mitigation of climate change, now has a Liberal Government that intends to move forward on this neglected area.
