Ontario Needs to be Concerned....
Ontario needs to be concerned....
If the McGuinty Government shuts down all coal fired generation as planned, Ontario will feel the impact not only in our pocket book but our economy will suffer. Jobs will be lost, people will leave our community our province.Worst of all our seniors will have to choose between heating their homes and eating and in the summer, cooling their homes or eating fresh fruit. Is this what you want for our seniors who have worked their entire lives to support you and me? What are we leaving our children? How do you explain to your children that we have used up the last of a natural and left them nothing. Do you know that there is over 300 years of coal and under 10 years of natural gas?
