Dear Deputy Mayor Kelly

June 11, 2014


 I am very disappointed that you have endorsed Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal government; especially given the predicament of the fine City of Toronto with respect to the behaviours of its mayor during this term of office. I feel obliged to comment as my professional work as a nuclear engineer takes me into the city and essentially all across Ontario and beyond around the world in this global industry. I can also comment that there are many, (my count is over 60) municipalities who would disagree with you based on calls for a moratorium on wind turbine development that is the miss-creation of this liberal government. (

Given the behaviours expected within business organizations, academia, and society in general around the world, I am not successful in rationalizing the unethical and wasteful behaviours of this liberal government, for greater clarity, i.e., some of its cabinet ministers, McGuinty, Wynne, Chiarelli, Matthews, Bradley; and I am sure you are aware of all of the examples that have been reported in the popular press over the past 10 years.

Why would the City of Toronto associate itself with Wynne? Given the unnecessary higher costs of electricity and well-advertised loss of democracy, due to the failed Green Energy Act, this seems ridiculous. The City of Toronto is growing rapidly and needs more energy, and this energy cannot be provided by wind turbines located in farmers’ fields, or by gas plants relocated far away. Just because the NIMBY concept is acceptable for gas plants that provide real power, but are truly back up for ineffective and expensive wind turbines, I am puzzled as to why the City does not do its homework.

The supply of money depends on what people earn, i.e., jobs; and what people and politicians spend it on, or waste it on. Money that is wasted can no longer be used to spend on high priority needs. Therefore, money that Toronto needs for subways, the Gardiner and down to filling potholes, that may be obtained through either taxes or transfers from government has been put at risk, and in-fact has been diminished by the inappropriate spending of the liberal government.

The only way to achieve access to money is through fiscal responsibility, and that, I expect you do know as Toronto Council has worked very hard on achieving fiscal responsibility. Why then do you endorse the Liberals????

Yours truly,
