It is important to know how our electricity is produced, which are the most eco-friendly options, and what we can expect from Ontario going forward. Luckily we had local experts, Bob Budd, Dr. Grant Dawson, and Dr. Mike Dawson, who explained it all! If you were unable to attend, we have provided a recap here.

Bob Budd and his partner, Bev, have lived off-grid using wood, wind and solar energy for the past 32 years. Bob is an active member of the Huron Fringe Field Naturalists, Citizens for Renewable Energy, Friends of the Morris Tract and many more environmental groups.
Dr. Grant Dawson grew up in Goderich and attained his medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2014. He is the Chairman of the Menesetung Bridge Association and produced media for the Milkweed for Monarch's Campaign. He has also been the Official Agent for Nicholas Wendler for the recent federal election.
Dr. Mike Dawson grew up in Aurora, did his medical training in London and Calgary, and settled in Goderich 36 years ago. He has worked out of his family practice. He helped found the Menesetung Bridge Association and the Milkweed For Monarchs Campaign in Goderich. Currently, he is worried that the world is failing to meet targets for reducing CO2 production, and is afraid we are watching a "Tragedy of the Commons" unfold.
