  • The Premier is sabotaging Ontario’s clean energy future

QUEEN’S PARK — MPP for Guelph Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to a report showing that fossil gas plants will supply 25% of Ontario’s electricity by 2030.

“Under the Premier’s watch, Ontario’s reliance on costly fossil gas plants has skyrocketed – and everyday people are the ones footing the bill.

Energy from fossil gas costs more, pollutes more and takes longer to come on line than any renewable source. To be ramping up investments while the rest of the world is moving in the opposite direction is just reckless.

Low-cost renewables are the cleanest, cheapest source of energy available. Our province should be doing everything in its power to take advantage of these critical opportunities to power Ontario’s future.

That means ending the moratorium on offshore wind and ramping up investments in the renewable energy sources already at our fingertips.”
