... We can't just plug these units in without thinking where the electricity is coming from.

Most of the electrical grids in North America are approching "maxed out" status now,

where will we be if we all start plugging in electric vehicles en mass?...

With current "maxed out status" upon us, it is imperative that new generating stations be built very soon, because of the long time delay before the needed power generating stations will actually get on line. Once the economy is back to near-normal then the electricity need will again keep increasing, while existing electric power generating stations will stop working because of old age. There must ALWAYS be more available capacity, including at peak usage times, than is being used.

Guess you don't know about the lakeview coal plant being closed before it could have been converted to one of these gas plants which would have prevented more pollution in Halton Region ?

Basically I expect the Federal government to enact policies that will help the whole of Canada, the Ontario government to enact policies that will help only the whole of Ontario, and municipalities to enact policies that affect only local problems. They all must get full payment for goods and services provided, and therefore taxes must be sufficiently high so that there are at least enough actual fiscal surpluses to cancel out ALL of the deficits over the long term.
..... Alberta's economic health depends on the Tar Sands, but these are only viable if the (world-?) price of their products is sufficiently high.
..... Pollution is a by-product of whatever is done by industries, and more production means more pollution. It depends on the process concerned whether or not pollution per product item can be
reduced. Can a person reduce farting by a given percentage if asked/required? Can the farting of cattle be per animal be reduced? Oh Yeah? Bullshit and cowshit?
..... The Lakeview coal plant, the electricity generating station near Toronto, was pretty old, and very likely converting it from coal to natural gas heating has been considered and rejected. But there should have been (maybe there was?) a "sinking fund" provided that would have provided a savings account for paying all costs involved in replacing that electricity generating facility.
Most people want to have electricity available whenever they want it, and that means that aging generating stations MUST BE REPLACED before they break down. Ontario imports electricity from other places (at very high costs?) when peak demand is higher than Ontario-produced electricity.
..... By the way, many people think of electricity being pollution free energy - but that applies only on the using end of the transmission lines; there is, unfortunately, a lot of pollution at the generating end of it. That applies not only to Ontario!
