Why have no wind farms been charged?
Clear double standard.

For what it's worth I would like to propose a new "Rural Electrification Act."

(Yes, I know, the old "Rural Electrification Act was an American legislation, but bear with me ok?)

Anyhow, give large tax incentives to farmers and very small communities to provide their own power through alternative renewable resource means. Once the intial power supply has been purchased and activated the tax break would be phased out for the applicant.

This would ease the burden on power grids by reducing long distance transmission.

It would be a signifigant assistance to farmers to whom energy is a major expense.

It would be a signifigant assistance to small struggling rural communities.

One hell of a P.R. coup for the CPC. (GREEN -- AND helping out the little guy?) -- Nice

It would be suicide for the opposition to oppose -- tack it in with some other initatives and you could force the Libs into supporting you or looking like bad guys.

It would play well in the Maritimes & arctic where the CPC needs support.

A tax break to small business (farms). (ANY TAX BREAK IS A GOOD ONE).

More importantly, it would have a lasting value. When we are struggling with a massive deficit and an aging population, we will at least pay less for electricity. If you give most of the break starting in June, it would also create imediate stimulus.
