Canadian environmental groups have announced a new initiative designed to hit back at the confusing anti-environmental rhetoric coming from Ontario's elected officials. Radio ads, community organizing and online work, including a new website – comeclean.ca – are elements of the push.
Ontario's Ministry of Environment took many in the wind industry by surprise when it recently announced that it was halting development of proposed offshore wind projects while further scientific research is conducted.
Comeclean.ca will help ordinary Ontarians get involved by asking their own questions to elected officials and demanding clear answers. It will track what elected officials are saying.
Radio ads will focus on clean energy jobs, burning coal, clean water and pesticides.
So far, Environmental Defence, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Ontario Sustainable Energy Association, Sierra Club Ontario and CPAWS Wildlands League are partners in comeclean.ca.
