Nobody has to pay for Niagara Tunnel


The Ontario government has taken the highly unusual step of ordering the province's Crown-owned electricity utilities to cancel their requests for hydro rate increases, amid worries of a consumer backlash over soaring power costs.

Whew! With the tunnel costing more than the oil spill, I thought we'd have to pay for it with electricity hikes. Especially with the wind and solar electricity coming in at 10 times the nuclear cost.

But no! We don't have to pay a cent! Thank goodness! :)

ps. tunnel doesn't look like it's recovered yet from it's oil explosion and fire.
