More on the Darlington Declaration:
Both Dalton McGuinty's Liberals and Tim Hudak's Progressive Conservatives have vowed to spend $36 billion on nuclear reactors at the Darlington nuclear station if elected tomorrow.
This is the wrong direction for Ontario.
Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster began last March, countries around the world have dumped plans for new reactors and are investing instead in safe and affordable green energy. Ontario should too.
We need as many people as we can get to add their names to the growing list of environmental organizations and green energy developers who are calling for Ontario to abandon plans for new nuclear and move towards a 100% green energy future.
Sign the Darlington Declaration here:
We have a film in the festival!
If you plan to check out the festival, be sure to see Greenpeace's screening at 2:45pm on October 15 at the Al Green Theatre in the Annex. Here's the synopsis:
