Local Plant Debate At QP

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is asking the Premier to reveal her government's plan to meet Northwestern Ontario's energy needs. It comes after the local plant burned its last piece of coal recently. Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli answered Horwath in question period yesterday. Chiarelli says he met with those concerned and they had their questions answered. Chiarelli and Horwath argued over whether the current conversion of the local power plant will be able to supply the region's energy needs.
