Get ready to open your wallets once again to the Ontario Government.
During Question Period at Queen’s Park Thursday, Environment and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray confirmed that he wants to eliminate natural gas as a fuel in the province.
Murray remarked that “in Toronto, where I live, my building and others in my neighbourhood don’t need to be running on natural gas. Home heating in the future is going to come from sources other than natural gas.”
The Progressive Conservatives argue that switching homes to electric heat will cost each Ontario household $3,000 more each year. 62% of Ontario homes use natural gas.
