OPG & Enbridge vs. Our Climate and Our Pocketbooks
Friends House, 60 Lowther (St. George subway station)
Doug Ford wants to ramp up the output of our gas-fired power plants by more than 300% by 2025.
To help fuel this massive increase in fossil fuel electricity generation, Enbridge wants to import fracked gas from Pennsylvania by building a giant pipeline in Hamilton -- a pipeline that would degrade Hamilton's Beverly Swamp provincially significant wetland and raise Enbridge’s gas rates by $120 million.
If Doug Ford and Enbridge get their way, Ontario will blow way past its 2030 Climate Protection target.
Fortunately, we don’t need to import fracked gas from Pennsylvania to keep our lights on. 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.
It’s time to protect our climate and our pocketbooks by phasing-out our gas-fired power plants and moving Ontario toward a 100% renewable electricity future.
