McGuinty Government Earns Top Marks for Clean Air, Water and Energy Actions

Ontario has been named Canada's greenest province in the latest Green Provincial Report Card from the Corporate Knights.

The report card evaluated provinces and territories on their progress in seven categories including air and climate, water, nature, transportation, waste, energy and buildings and innovation.

Ontario earned the highest grade in the 2012 report card. The province was recognized for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the phasing out of coal-fired electricity generation — the single largest greenhouse gas reduction initiative in Canada. This week, the province also introduced the proposed Great Lakes Protection Act that, if passed, would ensure cleaner Great Lakes for the future.

Protecting Ontario's air, land and water is part of the McGuinty government's plan to enhance quality of life for Ontario families and ensure a strong, green economy.QUICK FACTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The Corporate Knights is a Canadian company focussed on green capitalism.
  • According to the most recent National Inventory Report released by Environment Canada in April 2012, emissions in Ontario decreased by 34 megatonnes between 2005 and 2010- the equivalent of taking nearly eight million cars off the road – and significantly more than any other province.
  • Energy conservation is an important part of Ontario's Long-Term Energy Plan, which has set a goal of reducing peak electricity demand by 7,100 megawatts (MW) and 28 terawatt hours (TWh) by 2030. That's the equivalent of taking about 2.4 million homes off the grid.LEARN MORE

    CAPE has been a PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT in the CONSPIRACY TO PROHIBIT pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

     

    CAPE's ANTI-PESTICIDE ACTS OF SUBVERSION have EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED the Professional Lawn Care Industry.

    CAPE is a FUND-RAISING, LOBBYING, and PROFIT-SEEKING organization, and NOT a science, research, health, or physicians' organization.

     

    The VAST MAJORITY of CAPE members ARE NOT EVEN PHYSICIANS.

     

    In fact, CAPE represents an INFINITESIMALLY SMALL number of doctors.

     

    CAPE merely represents LESS THAN 4 PER CENT of all doctors in Canada.

     

    In fact, CAPE functions as a PUBLIC POLICY SHIELD for Green Party of Canada and Canadian Cancer Society.

     

    CAPE is presently UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CHARITY FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY.
