On Feb. 27, 2014 the OCAA was joined at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto by 300 guests to celebrate Ontario’s groundbreaking coal phase out. It took 17 years and a relentless effort to eliminate the single largest source of air pollution, toxins and greenhouse gas emissions in Ontario, but we did it! At the event we presented “Clean Air and Climate Champion Awards” to Bruce Lourie, president of the Ivey Foundation, Dr. Ted Boadway from the Ontario Medical Association, the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, and Premier Kathleen Wynne. We also heard from Premier Kathleen Wynne, who committed to continued action to address smog and climate change.
