Welcome to Gas Busters, a platform to crowd source analysis of the Ontario government’s decisions to relocated two gas-fired power plants originally sited in Mississauga and Oakville.
This document, called Energy-Mississauga, appears to have been originally created September 20, 2012 at 10:25. The document was created as an image-only PDF with, some of which are blank. The document appears to have its origin within Ontario Ministry of Energy. The document was part of the disclosure on September 24 forced on the McGuinty government by the Legislature.
These documents are rough, apparently deliberately so. Digitized records have been scanned into image-only PFD making them, in their current state, unsearchable. This first file is a 6,585 pages. Some of the pages are duplicates. Others are partly unreadable. Others blank.
There is important information buried here revealing the government’s irresponsibility. See for example on page 2362 where the Ministry officials note that as of October 11, 2011, “Alternative site options and alternative ways to supply Mississauga have not be identified.”
It is up to us to find the needles in these haystacks. Without the support of other concerned citizens, the truth will remain buried.
Take action. Download and OCR the documents. Find ways to organize the raw information. Help us build capabilities for readers to upload searchable files. Mirror this series. Build and link wiki pages to post what you find.
We don’t have much time, if our research is to aid our MPPs.
