Don't Nuke Green Energy: Stop Darlington

Video | August 20, 2010

Instead of using affordable green energy to replace the Pickering reactors when they close in 2020, the McGuinty government wants to build new reactors at the Darlington site 60 km east of Toronto. The cracks are showing in the government's nuclear plans, however. New reactors will cost $ 26 billion - $ 20 billion more than the nuclear industry promised just a few years ago. A recent report by Renewable is Doable, which includes Greenpeace, the Pembina Institute and the Canadian Environmental Law Association, shows that it would be cheaper to expand Ontario's use of green energy than build expensive new reactors. You can read the report here: http://www.greenpeace.org/canada/en/r... Greenpeace projected cracks onto the dome of the Pickering nuclear station recently to expose the cracks in the government's nuclear plans and call for the government to replace the station with green energy.
