Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarellli has done something foolish.
He has given Ontario Power Generation (OPG) permission to start rebuilding the four aging nuclear reactors at Darlington before the company even knows how much it will cost!
Minister Chiarelli has essentially given OPG a blank cheque to spend billions on outdated risky reactors. A nuclear reactor has never been built which stays within the budget submitted. Never. So we really have no idea how much this will cost Ontarians.
A dollar can only be spent once and every dollar spent on Darlington is a dollar not available for green energy and conservation.
Please take a moment to tell the Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli this is not the future you want.
Tell him you want your money spent on clean and affordable renewable energy and conservation.
