Premier Kathleen Wynne says Ontario will not ban the use of natural gas for home heating – as part of the province’s climate change plan.
The outline hasn’t been released yet – but the Liberals had been retentive about details ever since a published report – based on a leaked draft copy – said the province would phase out fossil fuels for home heating.
Wynne called the report “false,” and said natural gas will “absolutely” be used to heat Ontario homes in the future.
Wynne signed a deal with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley in Edmonton on Thursday – to develop clean technologies to fight climate change.
