Stop Nuclear Subsidies DEADLINE: June, 2009!!!

The province of Ontario is expected to sign a contract sometime in June for 2 new nuclear reactors to be built at Darlington at a cost of $26 billion. We think they should invest that money on renewable energy instead, moving us toward a 100% renewable energy grid.

Every nuclear construction project Ontario's history has gone massively over budget. And we are all on the hook for these runaway costs, paying a nuclear debt surcharge on every kilowatt of electricity we use. Renewable and natural gas generating projects are strictly prohibited from passing on cost overruns to consumers or taxpayers. It’s time to level the playing field and end nuclear’s free ride.

To get the word out we’re distributing leaflets around Ontario. To date we’ve distributed 90,000, if you can believe it. With your help we’ll distribute many thousands more. Can you help? It’s simple, fun and empowering to engage people in this issue. 9 out of 10 people we talk to are anti-nuke, I kid you not. They just don’t know the gov’t is planning new nuke builds. Let’s tell ‘em!

If you're in Toronto, please pick a shift or 2 and let me know which one/s you’ll show up for (so that I can let you know if things change unexpectedly):

Here are some recommended enviro and activist films:
