Nurses, doctors release new coal death statistics

At a Queen’s Park news conference today, Wendy Fucile of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario and Dr. Hilary de Veber of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment called on Premier McGuinty to phase-out our dirty coal plants now – four years ahead of schedule – to save 1,000 lives.

TheOCAA has clearly documented that Ontario now has more than sufficient coal-free power to keep the lights on. Let’s stop putting dirty power ahead of public health.

Please contact Opposition Leader Tim Hudak and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and ask them to support the call for an early coal phase-out (and please cc me).

Please pass this message on to your friends.

Thank you,
