A Call-out from the Canadian Environmental Law Association
Posted January 10th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
(A Brief Foreword Note from Niagara At Large – In 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.
