PETITION

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO

 

WHEREAS   Currently, 76% of homes in Ontario use natural gas for heat, and

WHEREAS   Natural gas is a clean, reliable and affordable fuel source and its price has been steadily in decline for several years, and

WHEREAS   Under theGovernment’s new plan, all homes and buildings built after 2030 will be barred from using natural gas, and

WHEREAS   Making the switch from natural gas heat to electric heat will cost an average of $3,000 extra per home and homeowners will be faced with between $4,500 and $15,000 in renovation costs, and

WHEREAS   The Government’s misguided energy policies have already resulted in unaffordable business and residential energy rates that are forcing jobs out of the Province, and

WHEREAS   The plan highlights confusion in the Government’s position, as the Minister of Energy is on the record recommending Ontarians switch to natural gas to escape exorbitant hydro bills,

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED,

PETITION THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO

AS FOLLOWS:

To immediately reconsider the plan to ban natural gas heat from Ontario buildings and new construction.
