The Ford Government wants to ramp up the greenhouse gas pollution from Ontario’s gas-fired power plants by more than 300% by 2030 and by 500% or more by 2040.

To help fuel this massive increase in fossil fuel electricity and climate threatening pollution, the provincial government recently purchased 3 gas plants at a cost of $2.8 billion, and plans to increase imports of fracked gas from the U.S. and western Canada.

Ontario is set to throw away approximately 40% of the greenhouse gas reductions it achieved by phasing-out its dirty coal-fired power plants due to a power plan built around ramping up gas-fired generation to replace the output of the Pickering Nuclear Station (scheduled to close in 2024).

If the Ford Government gets its way, Ontario will not be able to meet its 2030 Climate Target.  We must not let this happen!

There is no need for increased climate damaging pollution. Ontario can keep its lights on without increasing its greenhouse gas pollution by contracting for low-cost water power from Quebec and by investing in energy efficiency and cost-effective made-in-Ontario renewable energy. 

Read our comprehensive report on how Ontario can phase out its gas-fired power plants.

5,186 Nancy Hurst Ancaster Jan 07, 2022 Mr. Ford, you are ignoring the climate emergency and causing stress to Ontarians with your backward thinking on our environment. WHY would we even consider more gas plants? We need renewables. Just like we need EVs, along with wind turbines and charging stations that your govenment removed using my tax dollars. Stop taking Ontario into the dark ages. Please protect our climate by phasing out Ontario's gas plants. We can lower our electricity bills and our climate impact by importing clean water power from Quebec and by investing in energy efficiency and made-in-Ontario renewable energy.

Why are new homes being built without solar panels? This should be mandatory. A solar array on every home would take the burden off the grid, so the gas plants wouldn't be necessary.
