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

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!

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. 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.

446John LynnFonthillAug 03, 2017Ontario Hydro was the most indebted corporation on Planet Earth in 1990 (Maurice Strong as CEO made it even worse). Splitting it in two - an accounting sleight of hand. The Green Energy Act and wind turbines without storage went against all engineering sense and is an ongoing loss to be subsidized by everyone into the future. You sold our assets and income side and now it's acting like a Capitalist Corporation playing the zero-sum game of acquisition growth via a foreign coal energy network. Dirty energy and dirty business likely dreamt up by the finance MBA suits with some justification story about synergy creation:- i.e.- 1+1=3. No, 1+1 =2, unlike ENRON. Speaking Truth to Power, no pun intended, I'm calling you out as incompetent stewards of (Ontario?) Hydro One. Sunshine list salaries and all remain uncritically content. As the largest shareholder of Hydro One, the Ontario Government needs to ensure that the utility is benefiting Ontarians by investing in energy efficiency to lower bills and by expanding our ability to import low-cost water power from Quebec instead of spending its money on dirty coal plants.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. I encourage you to block Hydro One's purchase of Avista so that the citizens of Ontario do not participate in the ownership and operation of a company that does major harm to the environment and accelerates climate change.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. That includes investing $6.7 billion in Avista -- a "minor share" that won't influence the company's operations in Montana. Indeed, Montana is not even a member of the Western Climate Initiative and has voted against cap and trade since at least 2009. Do the right thing: stop this CO2 causing deal and get back to investing in renewable energy and mobility pricing so a GHG difference can actually be achieved.

Your government's continued focus on nuclear power confounds and distresses me. This is not clean power as you claim. You are forgetting we still have to figure out a safe and cost effective method of dealing with the resultant nuclear waste. I doubt Ontarians will ever forgive your government for selling off Hydro One. It's right up there with selling off Hwy 407.

Furthermore, overpaying untested executives, especially without also tying their compensation to delivering measurable outcomes that would benefit Ontarians, their largest shareholder. Overpaying to the degree Mr. Schmidt is compensated only serves to make him more out of touch than ever with the needs of the largest shareholder, the public. Mr. Schmidt should stick to his knitting, keeping in mind that Hydro One is a provincial transmission and distribution provider.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. Of course, by privatizing a major chunk of Hydro One, your government intended it to behave like a greedy corporation rather than serve public goals, and it has duly become less accountable to the public. But as the major shareholder -- even better, if Hydro One was renationalized -- the government can try to make it behave better.

I remember the smog days we used to have in Toronto and the haze one would see driving into the city. Thanks goodness those days are gone! We shouldn't again be part of the problem. Pollution knows no borders. The people, whether here in Ontario or elsewhere, shouldn't be subjected to the pollution of a coal plant. To allow this to happen to others would be highly hypocritical.

This investment represents a slap in the face to Ontario rate payers, the leadership demonstrated by the government of Ontario and tax payers as a whole.

The logic of investing in dirty coal plants is obscure at best. It should not take special legislation for Hydro One to recognize that investing in coal makes a mockery of Ontario's leadership on climate change. If Hydro One cannot recognize the nonesense of supporting coal at this time in history, the Government together with Ontario Hydro's other shareholders should make it clear that such investments are not acceptable, and possibly even illegal.

In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. Furthermore, on purely financial grounds, this decision is pure lunacy. The share prices of corporations that specialize in coal-based power generation will plummet due to competitors in the sustainable energy sector, where rapidly increasing efficiency is decreasing costs of clean power production and storage. Further downward pressure on dirty energy company share prices will is occurring as a result of dirty energy divestment campaigns. Whether from the environmental or the financial stanpoint, an investment in coal plants will almost certainly result in losses for the people of Ontario.

This move by Hydro One makes a mockery of all of the positive work the McGuinty and Wynne governments have done to address climate change, air and water quality. EVERYBODY else in the world (except perhaps so-called U.S. President Donald Trump) knows that coal is on the way out. Investing in it is a STUPID financial move. Even solar PV has a better LCOE story than coal now, and that's before carbon taxes and figuring out how to deal with coal mines tailing ponds and general environmental destruction (e.g. mountain top removal and filling streams). As the largest shareholder of Hydro One, the Ontario Government needs to ensure that the utility is benefiting Ontarians by investing in energy efficiency to lower bills and by expanding our ability to import low-cost water power from Quebec instead of spending its money on dirty coal plants. In fact, the Ontario Government should legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal to preserve our leadership on climate change. In the short term, call a special shareholders meeting to remove those directors which supported this acquisition, and have a reprimand for incompetence put in the dossier of all senior executives who participated in this action. Then, try to unload this turkey without costing Ontario taxpayers another fortune.

Please take another step for North America by making sure that Hydro One discontinues the use of coal in any facility it runs, wherever it is. Let us do what is right for the environment, for ourselves and our neighbours to the south. We can make a difference in climate change and now we can help America in this battle too.

Where is this government's commitment to this province or indeed, this country? In fact, the Ontario Government should immediately legislate a ban on Hydro One investing in coal -- full stop -- so Ontario can recover its faltering leadership on climate change. This shameful and cowardly energy purchase is alone a huge and compelling reason for Ontario to have kept full ownership of Hydro One. Any future sell off of shares in this utility would be a huge abdication of the Ontario Government's commitment to address climate change and to the people of this province. I hope Premier Wynne and her collaborators who have already let down Ontario by the disgraceful sell off of a portion of Hydro One will take heed and halt any further dismantling of OUR, not their utility!
