Hamilton calls for coal phase-out now
Last night Hamilton City Council passed Councillor Sam Merulla’s motion requesting the Government of Ontario to direct Ontario Power Generation to put its coal plants on standby reserve and only operate them if they are absolutely needed to keep the lights on in Ontario.

The motion was also supported by Hamilton’s Medical Officer of Health Dr. Elizabeth Richardson.
Please pass this message on to your friends.
