Whereas the Minister of the Environment has stated that his ministry will be reviewing the Greenfield South power proposal for new environmental evidence, And
Whereas the Ontario Municipal Board in their 2006 case, Greenfield vs. Mississauga, did not consider any environmental issues or concerns, And
Whereas Dr. Basillies report on the Clarkson airshed identified a stressed airshed and the need to consider accumulated emissions and their impacts on health in an environmental assessment,
Whereas the Minister of the Environment has agreed with the recommendations in the report, on the need to consider cumulative emissions in the siting of power plants, And
Whereas the Etobicoke, Lakeview airshed has never had the benefit of such a detailed airshed, pollutant and particulate modeling program, And
Whereas the Premier was quoted this week as recommending that the Minister of Energy review the Greenfield South project to determine if the 280 MW is even required.
Therefore be it Resolved that the City of Mississauga request from the Minister of the Environment a Full Environmental Assessment to be conducted on the Greenfield South proposal taking into effect the cumulative impacts of all emissions within the Etobicoke Lakeview airshed.
And be it further Resolved that the City of Mississauga request the Minister of Energy to conduct a full review to determine the necessity of manufacturing 280 MW in a densely populated urban area as opposed to the Nanticoke transmission option where there is a three kilometre buffer zone.
