The Ford Government wants to ramp up the greenhouse gas pollution from Ontario’s gas-fired power plants by more than 300% by 2025.

To help fuel this massive increase in fossil fuel electricity and climate threatening pollution, Enbridge wants to import fracked gas from Pennsylvania by building a large pipeline in Hamilton – a pipeline that would degrade a provincially significant wetland   and raise our gas rates by $120 million.  

If Doug Ford, Enbridge and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) get their 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.

1,332 Sandra Bray Elmira Aug 10, 2020 It’s time and we all know it. Local temperatures are increasing, as projected. Now we need housing retrofits and more electrification if our children are to have a liveable future outside of an air conditioned box. 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.

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. Also, many scientists today are promoting Thorium as a realistic alternative to our growing energy needs. It is plentiful and it produces significantly less waste than Uranium. Although Thorium, like Uranium, is not a perfect solution because of the waste, it is a much better alternative to natural gas, which has a much greater impact on the climate.

Failure to do so will surely assign current and future generations to misery thousands of times greater than the COVID-19 pandemic.

While gas is slightly better than coal, it is still a fossil fuel and emits a considerable amount of methane.
