Le 42e Parlement de l'Ontario
07 juin 2018 - 03 mai 2022

L’élection générale ontarienne de 2018 a eu lieu le 7 juin 2018 et a permis d’élire les 124 députés de la 42e législature de l’Ontario.

Le Parti progressiste-conservateur de l’Ontario, dirigé par Doug Ford, a remporté un gouvernement majoritaire avec 76 des 124 sièges dans la législature. Le gouvernement libéral sortant a perdu l’essentiel de sa députation, ne remportant que 7 sièges et devant ainsi abandonner son statut de parti reconnu à l’Assemblée législative.

Histoire de la promesse

1.05.03 - « Assurer la beauté de l’Ontario en protégeant […] en soutenant et renforçant nos programmes sur la qualité de l’air. »


“In 2017, the provincial government, then led by Kathleen Wynne, assured the Aamjiwnaang First Nation that it would be included in the project, which the government said would ‘improve the relationship with Ontario’s Indigenous communities.’ The Ford government also reiterated its importance. […] While the Ministry of the Environment has kept the First Nation regularly updated on the project, until last week it withheld key air pollution data informing the health study.”

“Last fall, the province quietly changed a regulation under Ontario’s Environmental Protection Act to exempt sulphur dioxide ‘flaring’ incidents at petroleum refineries from meeting the province’s air quality standards. Flaring incidents — in which refineries burn off excess crude oil products that cannot be processed — emit large quantities of sulphur dioxide in a short period of time. The flaring rules had been tightened by the previous Liberal government in March 2018. ‘The reality is right now there’s no air quality standard that applies to the flaring of acid gas at refineries,’ said [Elaine] MacDonald, [healthy communities director for Ecojustice, a Toronto-based environmental law charity,] in an interview. ‘So communities are vulnerable to spikes and high concentrations of sulphur dioxide from facilities flaring acid gas. And there’s no enforcement that can be done to prevent that from occurring, because they’ve just exempted that completely.’”
