Sign the petition below to show your support for closing the Pickering Nuclear Station in 2018.


Are you in the zone?

The Pickering Nuclear Station is surrounded by more people than any other nuclear plant in North America. Find out if you are in the high-risk zone and order your KI anti-radiation pills.

Learn more about what the impacts of a major accident at Pickering would be in our new report and in this story from the Toronto Star.

The Pickering Nuclear Station is the 4th oldest nuclear station in North America — and the seventh oldest in the world — and is located closer to a major urban centre than any other nuclear generating station in North America;

Retiring the high-cost Pickering Nuclear Station will reduce Ontario’s electricity costs by $1 billion per year.

The Pickering Nuclear Station is no longer needed to keep our lights on since we have a large electricity surplus and export more power than Pickering produces.

All of Pickering’s reactors will have exceeded their original 30-year design lives when the station’s Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission operating licence expires in August 31, 2018;

Beginning immediate decommissioning and deconstruction of the plant when its licence expires will create 32,000 person years of employment;

The Pickering Station has a troubled history of performance and safety problems (details here and here; also view our video interview with nuclear researcher Dr. Frank Greening ), including the worst accident ever at a Canadian commercial nuclear station — a major loss of coolant accident in December 1994 ;

Operations at Pickering continue to produce highly radioactive waste for which Ontario has no plans or facilities in place for long-term storage despite the fact that there is currently more than 36,000 tonnes of high level fuel waste in temporary storage at Ontario nuclear stations and this material will need to be secured for thousands of years;

Sign the petition to support shutting down the Pickering Nuclear Station by August 31, 2018 when its current operating license expires.

Close the Pickering Nuclear Station in 2018!

Dear Premier
