Canadian Green Energy Versus Nuclear
 
The Canadian Nuclear Awareness Campaign and Greenpeace Canada have launched a campaign to keep the oldest Canadian reactors closed, the A series reactors at the Pickering A and Bruce A nuclear power plants. These 8 reactors are now closed for repair and it will cost an estimated CAN$ 5 billion to start them again. The campaign has a number of proposals:
- promote renewable energy with minimum quotas for renewable energy plus mandatory labelling of electricity specifying where it comes from
- promote efficient cogeneration of heat and electricity
- funding for electricity conservation
- phase out coal-fired power plants
- do not allow the power company “Ontario Power Generation” to avoid the payment of its debt of CAN$ 23 billion for its power plants via a bailout.
