Do away with coal fired generation? Of course not!
Coal Generated Electricity in Alberta is owned and profited by the cities. You take away that revenue and up goes your taxes; dollar for dollar.
Coal generated electricity and cement plants are ideal for carbon capture. Will the cities put out the cash to put over the change over? Probably. if the province kicks in the lion's. share and again up go your taxes.
