Ontario is pushing renewable energy and shutting down coal plants. At least one province in Canada "gets it". Hello Alberta, home of the tar sands.

If Ontario can be successful, why not the rest of Canada? Or the US?

Nothing about the increased reliance on nuclear? Nothing on fracking and that since natural gas has become less expensive and is why Canada is making the the change. That's what I want Phil.

I live in Ontario, and I am not impressed what is done in order to save our environment. Just the opposite is true.

Sounds good but the reality is they are sending their problems onto us here in the USA with all their clever xl pipeline insanity et al..... Do not be fooled this scam/closing coal powered plant is just a house of smoke and mirrors. We are descending into Dante's Inferno at the 8th level if we believe them.
