Toronto, ON — We congratulate Ms. Wynne for being elected as the next Premier of Ontario. Over the last nine years, the Government of Ontario has built a solid foundation of progressive environmental policies including the establishment of Ontario’s Greenbelt, laws to protect endangered species and drinking water, and the Ontario Green Energy and Economy Act.
We look forward to working with the new Premier, and all elected officials, to make further progress on transitioning away from polluting energy to clean energy in a way that empowers communities, to curbing sprawl and relieving congestion with better public transit and to protecting the Great Lakes and Ontario’s natural heritage.
