There Has Never Been a Better Time Not to Buy a Reactor

The Pembina Institute June 2009

Groups ask McGuinty to delay buying new reactor and instead replace aging reactors with green power.

Conditions have changed and the McGuinty government should support its own Green Energy Act by deciding against buying new nuclear reactors this summer, say thirteen prominent environmental organizations in an open letter to the Premier.

The groups say there has never been a better time not to buy a nuclear reactor, and they urge the Premier to forgo spending billions on new nuclear and instead put his Green Energy Act to work by replacing the aging Pickering B nuclear station with green energy.
