It's been a horrible week for brownouts in the Willowdale-North York area of Toronto this last week: three on our block yesterday alone.

But the simple fact is that Ontario, and Toronto in particular, need more electrical power than we currently generate. The power supply should be a much larger issue in provincial politics than it has been. I stopped voting for the Harris-Eves Tories in part due to their complete mismanagement of this file while in office: I will have absolutely no compunction about dropping the McGuinty Liberals next time if they are the less impressive party on the power question.
