Trudeau electricity plan could lead to blackouts, soaring bills

Toronto Sun: 'A new plan by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government to achieve net zero emissions by 2035 could lead to blackouts, brownouts, soaring electricity bills and massive new debt.

'Since 2001, emissions in Canada’s electricity sector have plummeted from 129.2 million tonnes annually to 56.2 million tonnes in 2020, the last year for which government data are available.

'Today, electricity accounts for only 8.4% of Canada’s emissions and 82% of the grid is emissions free — relying on non-emitting sources of energy such as hydro and nuclear power and low-emitting natural gas.

'Wind and solar power are costly bit players in this transformation — multi-billion-dollar boondoggles — because they cannot provide base load power to the electricity grid on demand.'
