My holly plant has a lot of black leaves or partial black from the cold winter in Ontario. Do I need to cut away the blackened leaves from the plant now that it is Spring?

They will, usually, resolve themselves, but it would not hurt to remove them by hand. You may want to add wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime to the soil to ward off any infection that may be present in the soil. It will be good for it anyways, but it is a good spot treatment as well as preventative.
