The Ontario Government has been involved in the production and distribution of electricity since the first electricity “czar”” put independent producers out of business with that sustained brutality peculiar to governments.
As in all government enterprises, this has led to tremendous advantage for government workers and tremendous sacrifices from “customers.” Nice pensions, benefits far above competence, and etc. Add the “green energy hysteria and you have the above. Costs rise while output declines. The enterprise sells more and make less money. As they say in government “enterprises.” business as usual.
When there are no incentives for cost containment and all round efficiency, this is what inevitably happens.
