2. Sign Petition to Close Pickering...30kzone

The Pickering Nuclear Station is one of the oldest nuclear stations in the world -- and one of the largest. It is surrounded by more people than any other nuclear station in North America. OPG wants to run the plant until at least 2024, at which time it will be 53-years-old.     

The Petition calls on Premier Kathleen Wynne and her government to order that the Pickering Nuclear Station be shut down by August 31, 2018 when its current operating license expires.
For the background on the Pickering Station's troubled history of performance and safety problems see Sierra Club Ontario's submissions opposing the licensing extension "Pickering Nuclear Power: A Cracking Bad Idea". And click here to sign the petition to close Pickering Nuke!

Peck, Founder of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and co-sponsor of the 4th annual green infrastructure conference.
