Government agencies are currently weighing whether to approve the construction of up to four new nuclear reactors in Clarington, Ontario, despite a flawed federal environmental assessment that failed to gather evidence required to evaluate the project's need, alternatives and likely environmental effects.
With so much missing information and with the Fukushima nuclear disaster still in recent memory, it's ridiculous that this project is possible. But as one nuclear analyst said, "...here in Canada our authorities have pretended those risks don't exist."
Don't let the Canadian government shut their eyes when it comes to the risks nuclear reactors place on the environment and human health. Urge federal courts to stop government agencies from approving construction of the reactors until an adequate assessment is made.
As someone who values Lake Ontario, the Canadian environment, and the health of the Canadian people, I urge you not to advance the construction of nuclear reactors at Darlington in Clarington, Ontario until an adequate assessment reveals the project's need, alternatives and likely environmental effects as required by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.
