I congratulate Premier McNeil’s government for taking a step in the right direction with its decision to end the “must run” status of the Point Tupper biomass boiler. This should help decrease a terribly inefficient use of forest biomass for power generation. I took pleasure in notifying the 28,000-plus signers of my petition of this positive step, hopefully the first in this direction. Reduction of our carbon footprint is crucial.
