Ontario’s green energy plan: Interference goes green

In this article, originally published March 5, 2009  reprinted here courtesy of the National Post, Tom Adams argues that Ontario’s proposed Green Energy Act will undermine the basic foundations for effective public utility regulation in Ontario’s electricity sector. The article includes one of the first public comments during debate over the proposed legislation expressing concern about the extraordinary search and seizure provisions of the Green Energy Act as originally proposed and the threat this provision presented to civil liberties. This section was later removed by the Ontario government prior to passage of the legislation.
