Premier snubs Ontario Society of Professional Engineers with form letter - OPSE says "missed the intent"

So sad for Ontario. Premier sends a form letter in response to OPSE letter on climate and energy policy and the Ontario Action Plan on Climate Change.



..... it goes on but it does not acknowledge the substance of the OPSE letter. So OPSE has sent another letter to Premier Wynne:

Wynne
... it goes on. The kicker is this closing statement:

"OPSE wants a response from you that acknowledges the importance of engineering expertise and commits to consulting with OPSE and Ontario's engineers, now and in the future."

OPSE suggests the Premier missed the intent of the communications, but it is likely that the Premier just does not care.

As Joe Oliver writes in the Financial Post

"Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is behaving like an environmental activist unburdened by accountability, rather than a government leader devoted to protecting the welfare of her constituents."

Obviously the Premier believes that the engineering profession would be a burden and bring unnecessary accountability to Ontario's environmental and energy sectors.
