Not so long ago, a Progressive Conservative politician in Ontario was dreaming about trees.

"Imagine a province-wide effort to plant 150 million trees to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Ontario," said the Tory MPP, Ted Arnott, as he addressed the provincial legislature on Oct. 21, 2015.

"Imagine an invitation to every community group, service club, school board, church, municipality, conservation authority and so on — the private and public sectors alike — indeed, every organization that seeks to do good works in the province, and every resident of Ontario who cares about the environment, greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, and the planet that we leave to the coming generations."
