On Monday Oct 26th, the City of Kitchener passed a motion to call on the Province of Ontario to eliminate natural gas power production by 2030. This is a reckless and shortsighted demand that will only lead to increased financial hardship for Ontarians while doing nothing in the fight against global emissions.
We already have some of the highest power costs in the country in Ontario and if we continue to make thoughtless decisions – like banning clean natural gas – it will only get worse.
The proponents of this push to ban clean burning natural gas (Canada’s anti-everything movement) fail to note that:
This misguided push to ban clean natural gas will not reduce global emissions. It will only cause further hardship to Ontarians while risking our already fragile economic recovery.
Tell Premier Ford you support energy affordability. Tell them you support clean natural gas today.
