Ont. taxpayers on the hook for pipeline game

TORONTO — Ontario tax dollars appear to have flowed to an online game — available on publicly owned TVOntario — that features a natural gas line that can leak, make people ill or be sabotaged.

Pipe Trouble asks players building a gas pipeline to balance the interests of a “gas company rep” who demands the most economical route and those of a “volatile farmer” who looks at the environmental impact on the local community.

The game — available at pipetrouble.com — is for sale and part of the proceeds go to the David Suzuki Foundation.

Perhaps they should promote a "move the power plant" game. You have the crafty politian, the gulable public, and blank cheque.

Or the "Heat your home" game....the same crowd as the pipeline game except add the typical woring stiff who can only have Natural gas 3 times a week becuase of shortages in NG due to insuffiecent pipeline capacity

Or how about the "how green am I" game...the gulable greenies, a CBC presenter, a public broadcaster and the tax payer. CBC green presenter flys to your town (private jet of course) to promote not using fossil fuels...several cheer him on whille the majority work their assess off to pay for inflated powerr prices brought about by a premiers green shaft. (Presenter walks up the steps to the private plane and waves as he leaves)
