Ontario climate act petition

Please sign the petition, tabled by our MPP Peter Tabuns, asking Ontario to meet our Kyoto requirements even if Canada does not.  Energy and Transportation are provincial mandates so a great deal of climate change legislation will have to be put in provincially anyway.

I participated in provincial climate change consultations a few months ago, which theoretically were supposed to lead to an Ontario strategy.  Unfortunately, judging by the 2007 Ontario budget, the response will be anemic.  We’ll keep the coal plants running, put in as many natural gas plants as we can as well, limit wind and expand nuclear.  Transportation funding focuses on roads rather than public transit.

If you can spare the time, phone or write your MPP as well.
