May 17, 2012, Hagersville, ON - With the McGuinty government committed
to phasing out coal-fired plants by 2014, advocates of biomass have
figured that they had better strike while the iron is hot, according to an article from the Dunnville Chronicle.
A presentation at Hagersville Secondary School was the first stop on a cross Ontario trek for Bob Menard, a representative of the Power Workers Union joined Dr. Gord Surgeoner, president of Ontario Food
Technologies, Charles Lalone, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture’s
biomass co-ordinator, and Ian Moncrieff, president and CEO of Canadian
Biofuel of Springford.
“The idea is to cut out a little media space for biofuels to raise
awareness,” said Menard. “It’s what we want people to start thinking about when they hear
talk of renewable power.”
