Doug Ford’s PCs would put environmental gains at risk

By the Editor, Toronto Star, May 25, 2018

One of a series of editorials on issues facing Ontario’s voters:

The big issues in the Ontario election, so the pollsters tell us, are hydro costs, taxes, health care and the economy. The environment and climate change, they say, aren’t top of mind for most voters.

That may be so, but Ontarians ignore these issues at their peril. Whatever other failings they may have, the Liberals made impressive progress on environmental issues during their decade and a half in office. It would be tragic to see those gains halted or, even worse, reversed.
