The energy problem

McGuinty and his energy minister better hope that a major blackout does not occur while the energy workers are on strike. The daily threat of electrical shutdowns is a potentially huge political issue developing here. If John Tory and his advisers are a smart crew, they will come up with a bold plan on energy production in Ontario, one that does not include daily threats to power usage. If anything hits home with voters, it's surely sitting in the dark for extended periods of time.
