Toronto | Traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Chippewas and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation – Following the speech by the Honourable Todd Smith, Minister of Energy, at today’s event hosted by the Empire Club of Canada, Lana Goldberg, Ontario Climate Program Manager, Environmental Defence, will be available for comment and interviews. Lana Goldberg will focus on how the recent re-contracting of polluting gas plants along with plans to build new gas plants will make Ontario’s mostly clean electricity system a lot dirtier, and how the increasing reliance on gas power will both make it difficult for Ontario to achieve its emissions reduction target and jeopardize Canada’s ability to meet its own target.
