What: Thousands of Canadians have called on the federal government for stronger action to move Canada away from burning coal. By the close of the public consultation period for the proposed regulations today, thousands of Canadians will have made formal submissions to this process. Leading Canadian organizations are critical that the proposed regulations do not do enough to help Canada move away from highly polluting coal-fired electricity.
