The Pickering Nuclear Station is one of the world’s oldest and largest, and it’s surrounded by 2 million people. OPG is now applying for yet another licence extension, this time till 2028.
Meanwhile, it continues to release 100 kgs of tritiated water vapour daily – radioactive tritium is a carcinogen, mutagen and teratogen.
And it continues to suck up $1 billion tax dollars every year to subsidize its operating losses.
Are there other ways to meet our electricity needs that are lower cost and safer? Speakers:
- Jack Gibbons, Chair of the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, will address the costs and alternatives to extending Pickering’s licence.
- Dr. Ian Fairlie, radiation specialist, will address Pickering’s tritium problem.
Free car and bike parking onsite. Bus info and map here: http://www.varietyvillage.ca/
