Here's what come in this mornin' -
Yeow! I s'pose I expected as much. Well. I ain't tellin' Toby where I live so I reckon I won't be gettin' any more answers from him by email. I do live in his ridin' an' he knows me t' see me an' talk to an' I know his Pa an' knew his late Ma an' I know his sisters Liz an' Barb an' I own art work done by Liz an' CD's by his brother-in-law House. My ol' Mum is from a ol' timey Port Dover family jest like Toby. But I ain't revealin' my secret boogin' identity t' Toby, nosirreebob.

I sent my email t' Toby as a list o' questions he an' his Tory gang could use on Ginty t' make the Grits look bad in Question Period. They was the selfsame questions I posted in the lightbulb story. When somebuddy gives you a gift of QP ammo, I don't reckon it matters if they're from Port Dover or Portugal. I weren't askin' him t' come over fer coffee.
Here's my questions again -
What is the Ontario government doing to reduce it's own carbon footprint?
- The government purchases hundreds of vehicles for various ministry operations, policing, etc. Does the government have a procurement policy that requires public funds be spent on fuel efficient and/or hybrid vehicles?
- Buildings are one of the biggest contributors to GHG emissions. Has the government embarked on an energy audit program for all Ontario's publicly owned buildings?
- Ontario collects a hefty 8% sales tax. What is Ontario doing by way of tax incentives to encourage reduced energy use?
- Government properties like the grounds of public buildings and parks require lawn-cutting and landscape maintenance. What measures have been taken to ensure that eco-friendly methods are employed with regard to gasoline powered equipment, weed and pest control, planting of native species, etc.?
Now, I don't care if Toby emails back or not but I sure as hell do hope he takes my advice an' asks Ginty them questions.
I emailed Toby back with most o' what I wrote here. I reckon I did my best t' convince him that I'm livin' in his ridin' without tellin' my real name.
