The Ontario government announced this week that it is abandoning plans to build expensive and risky new reactors at the Darlington nuclear station.
This is a courageous and laudable decision.
It shows Premier Kathleen Wynne puts the protection of the environment and consumers before the demands of the powerful nuclear lobby.
Greenpeace has fought the plans to build new reactors at Darlington for the past eight years.
Under Premier Wynne’s leadership the government has accepted what Greenpeace has been saying for years: new nuclear reactors are highly risky, expensive and a barrier to the development of a greener energy system.
Premier Wynne’s decision puts Ontario on the path to a greener energy future.
Please take a moment to thank Premier Wynne for her leadership.
