Pesticide Ban Failure | David Miller | WWF-Canada’s new President and CEO

Welcome David Miller, WWF-Canada’s new President and CEO

EX MAYOR OF TORONTO

I believe that environmental issues are the greatest challenge of our generation.  How do we ensure that our planet is not harmed by human caused climate change? How do we protect our natural environment and species at risk? And how do we do this in a way that creates jobs and sustains our economy?

These are questions that I’ve confronted throughout my career, both as the Mayor of Toronto and over the past two and a half years as the Counsel for International Business and Sustainability at Aird & Berlis LLP.  In many ways my work in these roles—to build jobs and a strong thriving economy that coexists with our natural environment—mirrored the mission of WWF:  a future where people live in harmony with nature.

| Solar Panel Fail | Kingston Mayor Generates a whopping $1000 worth of power with Solar Panels | Gerretsen Properties official website

Since October 2009 these Helen St. Solar Panels have been operational. The amount of power produced since then is 19.4 MWh. Ontario generates and sells power at [the very most] $75 per MWh. That works out to $1500 of power generated in 2 1/2 years.  The true figure is closer to $600 of power generated for Ontario Residents at a huge loss in taxpayer monies because of the McGuinty MicroFit payout at 8 times more than the generated power.
