Ontario Clean Air Alliance Campaign Against Nuclear

Posted on by 0 comment

Hi everyone,

The Government of Ontario is about to write a massive blank cheque to the nuclear industry and we need to tell them no thank you.

Please spread the word about this effort.

60 Days to a new energy future
Do you think Ontarians should have a choice about how we spend $26 billion? Think there are better options than spending that enormous sum on new nuclear projects? Worried that you and your kids are going to end up paying the real costs of always late, always over-budget nuclear projects?
Help us distribute our great new pamphlet to people all across Ontario and get the word out about the need to stop another blank cheque for nuclear. You can order pamphlets from our website at no cost to distribute to your group, your friends, your workmates, and your community. Put them in your local library, community centre or drop in. Leave some in your favourite coffee shop or ask local retailers to put some on their counters (they will end up paying for nuclear cost overruns too).

We only have a couple of months left before Ontario makes a decision about signing another contract for nuclear power that will lock us into this expensive high-risk energy source for another 60 years. You know there are better alternatives. Let’s make it our New Year’s resolution to get off the nuclear treadmill — hit the streets with our new pamphlet instead!

If you’re in Toronto and love to walk, would you help us distribute our leaflets door-to-door in Toronto Centre, Energy Minister George Smitherman’s riding? Please attend one of our Volunteer Orientations and help us flip the off switch on new nuclear

Tues. Jan. 27, 6 – 8 p.m. OR Sat. Jan. 31, noon – 2 p.m. at 519 Church St. Community Centre
