    Sadly, it was expected but hoped that common sense would prevail - obviously, it's asking too much. Welcome to Ford Nation, welcome to Trump North.

    Legally, Yes... Sadly

    Mental presence is debatable.

    Looks like Tesla putting a full court press to get as many Model 3s into Canada as possible was a good idea.

    Much as I will miss this program, personally, something had to be done. You can't continue to drive up the debt forever.

    That means cutting a wide swathe of government programs - most of which are intended to buy votes from specific interest groups. Unfortunately there was a lot of green funding that was not well spent.

    I agree with above. The Green program was overly generous and was taken advantage of by installers; rather than by home owners.

    I have seen people who only replaced some of the windows in their home just to maximize their rebate.

    The rebate programs were financed out of cap and trade. The money to pay for the programs was not coming from general tax revenues. But since they plan to kill cap and trade the revenue stream for other programs dries up.

    So, where is the money going to come from for Douggie's proposed subway line? Subway lines to Pickering, Markham, in the long-term, says Doug Ford | The Star

    If the Scarborough line is $3+ billion, how much for the ones to to Markham and Pickering?! It's got to be at least $50 billion (no way is it going to be a Hyperloop though).
