WTE plant will cost us threefold

s B.C. a corporatocracy? The Liberals’ decision on Private Power (IPP’s), the plunder of our province through indiscriminate mining, the push to sell our water and the approval of Waste To Energy (WTE) are some examples of our corporate Liberals.

Is B.C. a corporatocracy? The Liberals’ decision on Private Power (IPP’s), the plunder of our province through indiscriminate mining, the push to sell our water and the approval of Waste To Energy (WTE) are some examples of our corporate Liberals.

When we become more proficient at recycling, and using Markham, Ontario’s recycling efforts as an example, there will be no garbage to incinerate, so the approval of a WTE plant will cost us threefold. First, the cost of the plant. Then penalties for lack of combustibles in the garbage which is then sent back to the transfer site. Third, paying the WTE owners (IPP) for power it cannot produce or sell until the contract ends, usually 25 to 30 years.
