Ottawa City council voted today (October 13, 2021) to pass a motion put forward by Councillor Shawn Menard in which the city will request that the government of Ontario to phase out Gas-fired electricity generation in Ottawa! This is a big step in the right direction, and one that could not be passed without the help of many dedicated volunteers. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.
Here is the letter that Liz Bernstein wrote to council on behalf of CAFES. Well said, Liz! Here is a link to the meeting summary which contains the full motion.
