Excerpt: "The proposed power plant is the biggest issue in Oakville. Having lived here 24 years, I believe it is the biggest issue in Oakville’s history. Led by the best organized and funded local interest group I have ever seen — Citizens for Clean Air — 2,000 Oakvillians recently dropped what they were doing to protest on the lawn of Queen’s Park. This is unprecedented and should have never been necessary." Click here to read more.

Support the “buffer zone” law!

 

Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn has introduced a private members bill in the Ontario Legislature. It’s called the Separation Distances for Natural Gas Power Plants Act, 2010 and is designed to protect the health and safety of Ontario residents.

 

The Bill would prohibit the construction of a natural gas power plant unless the plant is at least 1,500 metres from any land zoned for residential purposes or any land on which an educational facility, day nursery or health care facility is located.

 

If it becomes law before approvals are final for the proposed Oakville plant, the plant will not be built on the “Ford” site.

 

The bill will be debated in the Ontario Legislature April 22 at 2 p.m.
