Another one of Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal messes is the Stewardship Ontario fiasco with Eco-Fees.
On July 1st, 2010, this agency introduced environmental fees on a multitude of consumer products under the guise of funding of recycling programs.
They imposed the fees on such products as bleach, soap, dishwater soap, toilet bowl cleaners, laundry detergents, fertilizers for domestic use, etc.

It is an insult to the intelligence of Ontarians to tell us that we should be recycling consumables like bleach, soap and fertilizer.
The eco-fees are just another tax grab by the McGuinty government. The huge backlash against the fees sent the Liberals into panic mode and they scrapped the fees on July 20, 2010.
