55% of Ontario smog precursors originates in the United States. Likewise, acidic pollutants are transported thousands of km from U.S. origins, so that Canadian sources are responsible for less than 10% of total  SO2 and NOx emissions in Ontario. (Ministry of the Environment, Transboundary Air Pollution in Ontario, June 2005). Therefore, coal fired generation contributes significantly less than 10%, in proportion shown, to SO2 and NOin our air shed.
 
Ontario sources are shown in the link below, using information obtained from the Ministry of the Environment, Ontario's Clean Air Action Plan, June 21,2004, adapted to show transborder contribution.
