After an Ottawa man found his passive solar heating home in danger of being put in the dark by a neighbouring condo development, CBC Ottawa Morning decided to do a little digging and learn about whether there is a "right to light" in Ontario. Rob joined host Kathleen Petty on the February 7, 2011 show to discuss the current state of the law, steps solar investors should take before making a solar investment and what level of government should be addressing the issue.
