The environmental commissioner, whose job was eliminated when the political climate changed at Queen's Park, warns Ontario is not doing enough to conserve energy and curb greenhouse gas emissions.

In her final report to the legislature, Dianne Saxe on Wednesday blasted Premier Doug Ford's Progressive Conservative government for "very inadequate" climate change plans that leave her "very frightened."

"As climate change gathers speed, conserving energy must mean burning fewer fossil fuels," Saxe told reporters at Queen's Park as she tabled her 175-page report.
