And don't forget that Ontario has now closed all its coal-fired generating plants which should have a big impact:

In 2003 coal produced 25% of electricity in Ontario. In comparison, the USA still produces 37.4% of its electricity from coal (down from 57% in 1988).

And the map shows that the vast majority is upwind of southern Ontario:

This makes it difficult for Ontario to achieve very low levels of ozone and particulates. Of course, the "easiest" thing Ontario can do is reduce car and truck traffic (and enforce standards on the remaining industrial emissions).
