Tell Ontario Premier Kathleen wynne You Want 100 Per Cent Renewable Energy In Province

A Call-out from the Canadian Environmental Law Association

Posted January 10th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

renewable-energy(A Brief Foreword Note from Niagara At LargeIn September, 2016, the Liberal government of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne – without any public consultation or warning – slammed the brakes on approving any more renewable energy projects in the province, effectively leaving  any leadership role Ontario may play  in the green energy field to other jurisdictions like New York State, California, countries in Europe and even China.
In the following Call-Out, the longstanding Toronto-based pubic interest group,the Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA), is urging you to click on the link to its petition, urging the Ontario government to add real substance to its pledge to tackle climate change by getting back in a green energy field where advanced regions of the world are bound to grow and prosper sustainably in this 21st Century.)

From CELA –

Speak out for a clean, green energy future! CELA is working with other organizations including the David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defence, Greenpeace and many others, to show that there’s broad public support for shifting Ontario to 100 per cent renewable energy.

Tell the Ontario government that you want a clean, green future — not yesterday’s nuclear and fossil fuels. Let’s make a 100 per cent renewable Ontario a reality

Use the following link in blue to make your call for A renewable energy future in Ontario . Please sign this petition.

  1. Use of renewable energy is mandatory for many reasons.
    Effects on our climate caused by humans is also a proven fact and denying it is polemic. used to get elected. Just see what is going on in China and India. China is implementing the right things without being a democracy.
    Signing a petition means for me only complaining similar what the opposition does by only demanding to close down CBC and get rid of the carbon tax without presenting alternative solutions.
    Trudeau is still young and I got the feeling that is willing to learn and to do the right things. Instead of complaining we should work together by doing studies how to achieve the challenging task of protection our environment step by step without a carbon tax and taking purchasing power away from all of us. I am 82 years old and a retired engineer and more or less on a fixed income. Without getting any grants I leased a Toyota Prius as a small contribution to reduce green house effects and hopefully to save also some money. Who needs a passenger car with a few hundred horse powers in Canada with all the speed limits?
    Each party has “good: and “bad” members. When the worst ones become a leader something is terrible wrong. In a good company they would be fired in a bad one they get a ridiculous severance pay and a pension. Just to have an university degree is not a guarantee to meet the requirements of the job.
    Experience and proper guidance to qualify for the job are more important prerequisites.
    I am not a fan of the so called social media, but I would be willing to participate in discussions and actions to provide guidance to our government instead of complaining. Especially in Ontario that is mandatory and a change in leadership could be helpful if the outcome is ignored.
    We should first think before we talk or write polemic.
