The March of Progress

Or, The Progress of The March:

Ontario will phase out the use of "inefficient" lightbulbs within five years.

The Canadian Press has learned the provincial government will announce it will ban the sale of light bulbs it considers inefficient by 2012. It's part of the province's energy conservation program.
Guess these aren't going anywhere…

One more reason for your trip to Port Huron.

Trade you my prescription drugs and Cuban cigars for your lightbulbs.

Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and need to be taken to the special toxic waste disposal unit. Look up what a few drops of mercury will do to a lake. This was typical politicking, out of the fire into the frying pan mentality. Ontario Hydro is the only company EVER to have commercials on TV and radio telling the consumer to use LESS of their product.

Right! And when you take them up on their challenge to use less they raise the rates to offset lost revenue.
