He’s not interested in the Green Ontario rebates

Mark Mitchell threw out his application for the Green Ontario rebate program as soon as he saw the words 'Ontario College of Trades'

In our last E-News we reported on the Ontario government’s Green Ontario rebate program.

We wrote that we were happy we saw NO mention in the application documents about the (useless) Ontario College of Trades (OCOT) in the documents we read.

We stand corrected, as below.  Thanks Mark for letting us know.

Actually Steve, I looked into the rebates I could offer for certain heat pumps. They lost me when asking for my OCOT card for refrigeration. I don’t recognize these people as my overlords, so I threw the application out. It seems the IESO is brainwashed into believing that OCOT is in charge of certifying refrigeration mechanics.
