The Ford Government wants to ramp up the greenhouse gas pollution from Ontario’s gas-fired power plants by 375% by 2030 and by more than 600% 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 almost half 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 report on how Ontario can create a Zero-Carbon Electricity Grid by 2030.

5,363 Joy Barnett North York Apr 19, 2022 Please protect our climate by phasing out Ontario's gas-fired power 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. Quebec has more than enough water power to share. This may also help them feel more inclusive with Ontario and Canada.
