Haldimand Mayor Marie Trainer says she's working to rally local MPPs to help bring a natural-gas fired generating facility to Nanticoke. Trainer says she, along with Mayors of Mississauga and Oakville are working to get a proposed plant slated for Oakville into Haldimand and are hoping for the support of MPPs to get the plant voted out of the city. Trainer says the province keeps saying they are 'considering' Haldimand, but she's looking to make it a reality. Trainer says there are $4million in land taxes and $3 million in Haldimand Norfolk spin off dollars at stake should the coal fired plant in Nanticoke close in January 2015 with nothing to replace the plant
