Publication Date: 
August 22, 2006
In December 2005, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) released a report on electricity planning, which included the recommendation that existing nuclear power reactors in Ontario be refurbished and new nuclear power reactors be built.

The Sierra Club of Canada opposes nuclear power because it causes ongoing environmental damage and presents a risk of catastrophic accidents. There are less risky and less damaging sustainable ways of meeting the electricity needs of consumers and industry. In fact, nuclear power is the most expensive and least reliable option.
