Toronto, ON – As an alliance between workers, environmentalists and NGOs, we are encouraged by the Ontario government’s plan to put conservation first when determining how to meet the province’s energy needs.

Energy conservation is a prime example of why our alliance came together – to show that we don’t need to choose between a clean environment and a strong economy. If properly implemented, energy conservation helps cut emissions that cause climate change, protects the environment and creates good jobs.
