There are still a lot of coal fired electricity plants in the Ohio valley, and the Provincial report claims that much of our rising ozone and particulate pollution is due to transborder pollution.

See, for example, this 2005 report (I'm not sure if there is anything more recent):

"Based on 2003 demographics, Ontario is burdened with almost $9.6 billion in health and environmental damages each year due to the impact of ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter. Of this total, approximately 55 per cent is attributable to U.S. emissions."

Canadian Geographic has a nice graphic which shows major emission sources in the USA:

(again, a bit old, but likely not too different now).
