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. [read: Council: Shut Down Coal Now!]

The motion was also supported by Hamilton’s Medical Officer of Health Dr. Elizabeth Richardson.

 

Please contact Premier McGuinty and asked him to phase-out coal now (and cc me).

 

For background info on how and why we can stop burning coal today, please see our leaflet or our report.

 

Please pass this message on to your friends.

 

Thank you.
