43637Ontario vows to ban coal-powered electricity generation
- Nov 21, 2013
Ontario’s minority Liberal government will try to ban coal-fired electricity generation in the province, Premier Kathleen Wynne announced on Thursday.
Wynne said the Liberals plan to introduce legislation next week, that, if passed, would ensure that no Ontario station will burn coal again.
The Ending Coal for Cleaner Air Act would ensure that coal facilities stop operating by the end of 2014, Wynne said.
