Two years after the Fukishima nuclear accident many made homeless by that accident still live in shelters.
None of them have received enough compensation to rebuild their lives.
This is because an unfair law allows nuclear companies to ignore their responsibility to pay decent compensation to accident victims.
This law encourages companies to take risks with people’s lives and walk away from an accident without paying any of the costs.
This unfair, federal law protects the nuclear industry in Canada too.
So, if there is a nuclear accident at the other end of the country it's all taxpayers – not the nuclear companies - who pick up the tab.
This is law is wrong. It must change. Please sign this petition which we will present to the Harper government.
Protecting people should be the first priority and if the nuclear polluters must pay for their pollution. Tell Stephen Harper you agree.
