Petition to end passing nuclear project cost overruns onto ratepayers and taxpayers
Join the 428 people who are already calling for an end to the practice of passing nuclear project cost overruns onto ratepayers and taxpayers.
Petition to the Legislature of Ontario
Whereas every nuclear project in Ontario’s history has gone massively over budget, on average by two-and-half times;
and whereas Ontario has numerous lower cost and safer options for meeting its electricity needs;
We the undersigned call on the Government of Ontario to:
- Require that all nuclear projects (repair, re-build or new construction) be competitively tendered on a full-project, all-in, fixed price basis to ensure transparency and eliminate public liability for cost overruns; and
- Enact a moratorium on the proposed Darlington Nuclear Station Re-Build and New-Build Projects until the Ontario Power Authority (or its successor) has completed a report on the potential to meet our electricity needs using a mix of lower cost and safer options, including. energy conservation and efficiency, made-in-Ontario green power, water power imports from Quebec, and small-scale, high-efficiency natural gas-fired combined heat and power plants.
If you would like to be kept informed about how we can create a 100% renewable electricity system for Ontario, join the Ontario Clean Air Alliance's email alert list by providing your email address below. Your email address will not appear on the petition or any public web pages.
