    • Goals

      C4CA is pleased that the Ontario Government has made the right decision not to allow the proposed power plant to proceed.  Power requirements are important, but that is just one of the reasons not to have this plant go forward.  Ontario’s decision is correct for many good reasons, as the Premier clearly indicated.  It is important to ensure that proper planning principles are followed and that plants are not built in locations, such as Oakville, that affect the health and safety of people.

      TransCanada, the owner and operator of the proposed plant has indicated that work has been “suspended” in reference to the development work on the plant and that the review of the Environmental Review Report and Supporting Documents is being “discontinued at this time”.

      C4CA and our members must continue to be vigilant.  We do not consider our work complete. The health and safety of Oakville and other Ontario communities remains of paramount concern to us. Pending an upcoming membership meeting, we expect that some of the following priorities will become major themes as we move forward.  

      Over the next several weeks C4CA will work towards articulating our action plans in more detail so that they can be presented at a town hall meeting and by email.

      Please continue to stay in touch & reach out to your neighbours & ask them to become members as well. Membership is free & can be activated within minutes on our website where you can also keep up to date on our activities….http://www.c4ca.org. Together we are stronger.

      Although our primary focus is on improving our Air Quality and ensuring Buffer Zones are implemented as per the Balsillie Report, we are also concerned about improving the following items all of which support our primary goals:

      • Supporting Our Town
