Hydro One plans to buy part of one of the dirtiest coal plants in the western United States through its acquisition of Avista.  Instead of spending its money on dirty coal, Hydro One could profitably invest in improving energy efficiency right here in Ontario, which would help lower bills for millions of Ontarians.  The utility could also expand transmission connections with Quebec, allowing us to import more low cost water power.  For more on Hydro One’s cleaner investment options, click here.

Please sign the petition and tell the Ontario Government to make it illegal for Hydro One to invest in coal anywhere.

Stop Hydro One from investing in dirty coal

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. Let us not slide backwards! We need bold leaders to take us forward.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. If Ontario had chosen Quebec, relatively, clean power 30 years ago, we'd be at least 100 billion bucks richer and we still have the daunting cost of cleaing up the nuclear waste that is presently stored in our nuke plants! Do what is best for Ontario, up house insulation standards so we use less power,.. and lets use Canadian power sources, like Hydro Quebec!

As far as climate change goes, until the whole world changes I do not see how Ontario will make any kind of difference in the amount of carbon going into the atmosphere.

527 Cameron Smith Lansdowne Aug 06, 2017 I can't tell you how angry I am with Premier Wynn. First she sold off a large chunk of Hydro One, which is a PUBLIC utility, i.e. a utility that belongs to and serves the people of Ontario. Now, Hydro One has acquired Avista, one of the dirtiest coal plants in the western United States. Instead, as the largest shareholder of Hydro One, the Ontario Government should be ensuring that Hydro One is benefiting Ontarians by investing in energy efficiency to lower bills and by expanding our ability to import low-cost electricity from water power in Quebecs. In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. How does purchasing a coal plant in the Western United States help Ontario receive more energy? And why does your government charge us a Carbon tax when they are willing to invest in Coal burning power plants? Your government has mixed messages and are hypocrites. Can't wait for the election so we can vote you out. Thanks for nothing, A pissed off Ontarian

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. WITHOUT PREJUDICE: It is hard to believe that our TAXPAYER dollars are continually being diverted by the Liberal Government to absolutely unbelievable, short-sighted, negligent, unjustifiable and just plain stupid investments. How in the world, in this day and age, when Ontario deliberately stopped electricity generation from coal, can this Wynne Liberal Government even consider such an inept way of spending our dollars, without our permission. We already know this government is incapable of making good and solid decisions on spending. I have never voted for Liberals and will continue to vote against them in the next and future elections for this very reason and their record while in office bears out this claim. There is hope that President Trump will disallow the purchase and/or management of an electricity coal generator in the U.S. by a foreign government. Surely, sanity will prevail from the U.S. side of the border because it certainly is not evident on the Canadian side. Canada should definitely have a policy against any taxpayer dollars being invested/diverted into coal generation and if we do not, where is our beloved Prime Minister on this issue when he's not posing for selfie's? A sad joke for all of us.
