"Ontario Premier’s Bill Bans Coal-Fired Power in the Province"

"TORONTO -- Ontario is going coal-free. The largest coal-burning power plant in North America, Nanticoke Generating Station on the north shore of Lake Erie, will stop burning coal this year, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced on Thursday."

"Premier Wynne also announced new legislation – the Ending Coal for Cleaner Air Act – which will permanently ban coal-fired electricity from the province, making Ontario the first jurisdiction in North America to do so.

“Our work on eliminating coal and investing in renewables is the strongest action being taken in North America to fight climate change,” said Wynne, announcing the new measures. “I believe we can work together as stewards of our natural environment and protect our children, our grandchildren and our fellow citizens.”"
