Pickering’s future is in your hands - Is keeping one of the world’s oldest nuclear plants operating for another 12 years – smack dab in the middle of 2 million people – a good idea?


Is keeping one of the world’s oldest nuclear plants operating for another 12 years – smack dab in the middle of 2 million people – a good idea?

In our new 5 minute video, former Ontario Power Generation (OPG) nuclear scientist Dr. Frank Greening explains the risks of keeping Pickering operating for another decade.

 Dr. Frank Greening discusses why we should close the Pickering Nuclear PlantThe Pickering Nuclear Station is the oldest nuclear plant in Canada, the 4th oldest in North America and the 7th oldest in the world. But despite clear evidence that Pickering’s outdated technology is well past its prime, Ontario Power Generation says it will ask for a 10-year licence extension when the station’s current licence expires in 2018.

That means the more than 2 million people who live around Pickering’s eight reactors – more people than live around any other nuclear plant in North America – will continue to have one of the world’s oldest and largest nuclear plants on their doorstep.

Join us on Wednesday May 11, 7 p.m. at the Ajax Public Library to discuss how we can build a better and safer future for the people of Pickering, Ajax, Oshawa, Whitby and Toronto by shutting down this nuclear dinosaur and restoring the waterfront.

We’ll look at cleaner and more cost-effective options for meeting Ontario’s electricity needs and how quickly and safely decommissioning Pickering’s radioactive remains can create jobs and save us all money.

Come out and help us to design a community that is safe and green.

And don’t forget to sign our petition calling on the Ontario Government to close Pickering no later than 2018.
