April 28, 2016 – The Government of Ontario is making plans for the introduction of a new agency that will be given a broad mandate to change energy use in the province.

According to an article from The Globe and Mail, the information was stated as part of a confidential draft of Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan that was obtained by the newspaper.

The plan calls for the removal of seven million gas-burning cars from provincial roadways by 2030, ensuring most building are emissions-free by 2050 and additional carbon reduction initiatives.

The document, according to a spokesman for the Minister of the Environment, is a preliminary draft to solicit feedback on the government’s ideas for reducing carbon emissions.
