1 Comment to Ont. Liberals – Our Province Second Only To California For Foreign Direct Investment

  1. Ernest Horvath

    Most foreign investment is in the “Environment” industry.
    The investments coming into Ontario to take advantage of selling you power at 3 to 15 times conventional rates is without a doubt enormous.
    But there is a reason.
    As a farmer , if you could sell your crops to Ontarians for 3 to 15 times the prices grocery stores sell it the public for and the public would have to purchase your product first above all others before they could buy the same product others sell…well you would have a pretty good deal going.
    That is the foreign investment going on and why there is foreign investment flooding Ontario.
    You have a captured market , in a monopoly , with protected sales above all others at inflated prices far above what the necessary product is sold for.
    No surprises here now is there?
    The problem with the investment flowing into Ontario is that it is a Vampire Economy. In order for this industry to survive it sucks the financial life out of other industries and the people that must buy the product while this industries grows fat and strong…at the end of the day taking the profits out of the country .
    It should also be for the good of the people that pay for it. Not just foreign corporations.
    You should also know that California went full steam ahead mirroring Ontario with their energy policy and is all but bankrupt.
    I am not against a good environmental policy , but it must be financially responsible , results based , transparent , void of PR spin , and not destroy more jobs than it can create.
    Unfortunately , 2-5 jobs are lost in traditional manufacturing for every job created in the alternate energy industry.
    Hundreds of Millions of dollars of your tax dollars have been redirected from important services they were intended for , to support and entrench the Environment Industry and for profit Energy Business.
    Not much to celebrate .
    It means prices are going higher , heat , power , gas and taxes will be more….
    All in a middle of a global recession when cost should be going down.
    Instead with all the touted foreign investment the Ontario Government is claiming….why is it everything keeps costing us more and more and more?
    Guess that’s why they call it a Vampire Economy.
