In his most recent announcement, Ford noted the province will nonetheless honour existing contracts, orders and projects -- such as energy efficient insulation and window retrofits -- funded by cap-and-trade. Some existing Ontario energy efficiency rebates were being phased out before Ford officially took office last week. The premier says the government will decide on a case-by-case basis whether some initiatives previously funded by the cap-and-trade program will be paid for using tax base revenue.
As previously reported, Ford claimed eliminating the provincial cap-and-trade system will help him deliver on campaign promises Ontario the electorate doesn't realistically expect him to keep -- cutting retail gasoline prices by roughly 4 cents per litre -- which is apparently more important than the roughly $3 billion the carbon tax contributed to the provincial coffers since the system was introduced by the then Liberal government in 2017. And, in a move that rings of Trump political posturing, the new Premier also reportedly promised to lower the price of beer to $1.00 per can in an effort to appeal to his base.

When fully commissioned and online later this summer, the project will generate 93.2MW of capacity and will showcase the world's largest offshore wind turbine -- a 8.8MW model from MHI.
LC Energy report readers will no doubt remember now president Donald Trump's war with the EOWDC project in opposition to which he claimed "offshore wind will destroy Scotland" because "it would spoil the view" from his Aberdeen Bay golf resort that was then under construction. Trump took legal action to kill the EOWDC project but lost, partially on the absurdity of his claim.
