Goodbye King Coal

On April 8th, the Thunder Bay Generating Station burned its last lump of coal marking the end of an era in Ontario. Ontario is now the first jurisdiction in North America to fully eliminate coal as a source of electricity generation. By shutting down all of its coal plants, the province has successfully eliminated its single biggest source of smog, toxins, acid rain and greenhouse gases, and Ontario's coal phase out is probably the single biggest act of fighting climate change in Canadian history.

This kind of thing doesn't happen very often so Ecology Ottawa is throwing a Goodbye King Coal celebration and you are invited (we aren't claiming credit, we just want to surround ourselves with people who care and celebrate this important achievement)! So please join us on the evening of May 8th to celebrate the one month anniversary of the end of King Coal in the Province of Ontario! Space is limited, so please RSVP

    I can attend the latter half of the event due to the canvassing schedule. We may end the canvass early that day if advisable.
