Energy issues in provincial byelection in Parkdale-High Park

We are in the middle of a byelection in Parkdale-High Park, where Green Party of Ontario leader Frank de Jong is running.  He has agreed to make the Portlands power plant an issue in his election, and I’ve offered to help on his campaign.  I’ll probably be distributing flyers for him next weekend.  If we could get a crew from Toronto-Danforth, it would spread a lot of goodwill.

Jim Harris has asked me to mention the campaign for clean energy in Ontario.  Greenpeace, Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund and Toronto Environmental Alliance have joined together to make clean energy an election issue.  They are concerned that the Province is promoting nuclear power, and failing to close the coal-fired power plants, and they are using the byelection in Parkdale-High Park to make it an issue.  Go to their site at to read more and to sign on to the campaign.

If you want to get more deeply involved in the energy campaign, they are meeting at 7 pm Thursdays in August and September for strategy sessions at the Tinto Coffee House at 89 Roncesvalles Ave, 2 1/2 blocks north of Queen St W.  Call Sarah at 416-537-3966.
