The article offers information on the consequences of the continues operation of four coal-fired thermal stations of Ontario Power Generation Inc. (OPG). It states that coal-fired plants provide clean air and expensive natural gas that may result to cost power increase and cutting employment in which the government of Ontario is struggling. Moreover, three Ontario municipalities passed a resolution for clean air on Ontario's Government such as the Hamilton City, Kitchener, and the Guelph City.
