Opposition just wants to complain: premierTabuns says it doesn't make sense to him that the action plan wouldn't be released before the legislature's summer recess. Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown says the Liberals should quickly offer some clarity on their plans about the future of natural gas in the province. But Wynne says the opposition parties are anxious for details because "they want to launch their critiques" of the climate change plan as soon as possible. "The opposition doesn't agree with what we're doing, but the opposition also has no plan, and so I'm going to take with a slight grain of salt any critique that I get from the opposition on this file," she said. "We're going to continue to move ahead because in the global context, we're taking a leadership role, and it's the responsible thing to do." Glen Murray, the province's environment and climate change minister, repeatedly told the legislature last week that the province will not ban the use of natural gas for home heating and would not be taking people's gas furnaces away from them.
