Ontario's declining GHG emissions

Saw this on Live Free or Die's blog where he cites a recent Pembina item on Ontario's declining greenhouse gas emissions.
Good roundup of GHG data. This part stood out for me:
Inside Canada, provincial emissions results almost always generate some interest. Although Ontario is no longer Canada’s top emitter — a title it has lost in recent years to Alberta — the province is still probably the standout emissions story for 2009. Ontario’s emissions fell by 13 per cent from 2008 to 2009 , moving the province to 7 per cent below its 1990 emission level — a result that (for now at least) puts Ontario ahead of its 2014 target, which is to reduce emissions to 6 per cent below the 1990 level.
Glad to hear that McGuinty’s policies are having a real effect.
Just wanted to note that as I missed it in the last week. That seems to be a real positive for the coming campaign as energy issues and costs are going to be a big focus.
