The problem Ontario had was its 'cheap and abundant' hydro power, particularly Niagara - closest to the industrial/population centre,  was tapped out fairly early on.  The development costs for nuclear scared, and scares, the pants off government, coupled with the numerous lobby groups and the unanswered questions of waste disposal.

Ontario doesn't have the topography in the north that Quebec does, nor the massive prairie-draining rivers of Manitoba, to generate much more than it already does.

Americans stay home is the message. Even cars with US cars are vandalized. Not very welcoming.  ;D

If it’s any consolation to you, the new favourite sport in the interior of BC is vandalizing vehicles with Alberta tags.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Which may be why Ontario, joined with Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, and now Albertato investigate the use of Small Modular (Nuclear) Reactors for future energy needs.

But the border remains closed until late November. Less bugs would be encountered that late.
