The rally scheduled for Friday Feb 11, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. has been cancelled. Instead of a rally, C4CA is seeking a meeting with the Premier and our MPP Kevin Flynn to thank them for their role in cancelling the proposed power plant and to discuss how we can advance our goals of a 'greener' Ontario with C4CA's priority issues being:
- Implementing the Balsillie Report to address the poor air quality in Oakville-Clarkson air shed and related health impacts, such as the highest youth asthma rate in the province. In particular, we are asking the Province of Ontario to launch a Comprehensive Air Management System pilot project in this area as soon as possible.
- Establishing mandated buffer zones for new power plants to better protect all Ontarians from plants being built too close to residential communities.
Thank you to everyone who was planning to attend the rally.
