For a party that`s supposed to be big on Green Energy, the Tory MPP for Nipissing says the provincial Liberals have an odd way of showing that. Vic Fedeli was in Northwestern Ontario touring power plants and noticed a contradiction with a former coal plant in Thunder Bay.
Fedeli says the plant has been converted to burn black pellets. The problem he says is these pellets can only be bought from Norway.
Fedeli says that`s not an environmentally friendly way of doing things. He says the plant is to us off coal as we move toward Green Energy yet we expend energy chugging coal from Norway every day.
By contrast Fedeli saw a similar plant in Atikokan which burns pellets that are produced locally.
