Adam Beck’s Nightmare


In 1906, Adam Beck developed the concept of creating affordable electricity in Ontario. And so that’s how it was, Ontario had access to affordable energy that helped us boom in manufacturing and made us the economic engine of Ontario. All that came to a grinding halt in 1988 when our Provincial government decided to make electricity a business. Since then, our rates have doubled and manufacturing in Ontario was decimated. Andy Frame, in the Toronto Star itemizes the long list of expenses that consumers and businesses must pay in order to turn on the lights. Please see his fascinating article. I think we should go back to Adam Beck’s vision. Unfortunately, our politicians are too greedy for that. What do you think?
