Those Progressive Conservatives

"The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has developed one of the most progressive energy policies in the country and their support for the development of wind power is exemplary," said Kerry Adler, CEO of SkyPower.

Yeah, that state-monopoly wind energy industry is going great guns in Labrador.

Can someone — hi, Ed Martin! Kathy Blunderdale! — explain to everyone, in small words we can all understand, why private-sector wind energy developments are alright for Fermeuse, Newfoundland, or St. Lawrence, Newfoundland, or Ramea, Newfoundland... but not for Labrador?

Why do We, in all Our Imperial Glory, own the wind in Labrador, but not in Newfoundland?

What's with the curiously colonialist-imperialist double-standard? How is that double-standard, now written into Our Dear Energy Plan, in any way, shape or form, "progressive"?




Why is one part of the province allowed to have a wind energy industry, but not the other part?
