Some people asked for more info: Please read our report on how we can close the Pickering nuclear station and lower bills.
If you do come out on Saturday, please consider sharing your thoughts with our film crew on why you think the Pickering station should be closed. We’ll edit together everyone’s comments and share the final video with Premier Wynne and other Ontario MPPs. And if you can’t make it, you can email her at email@example.com. Thanks!
Meet me on the Beach – to Call for the Closure of the Pickering Nuclear Station
To Commemorate the 6th Anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown of 3 reactors, join us on the Beach to call for the closure of the 6-reactor Pickering Nuclear Station in 2018:
☢ Sat. March 11, 2 p.m.
☢ Pickering Public Beach (south end of Liverpool Road)
Bring your banners, kids and friends. We’ll bring speakers, music and cameras. With your help, we’ll record YOUR voices telling our Members of Provincial Parliament that we want Pickering closed in 2018 when its current licence expires – before we have our own Fukushima catastrophe in the middle of our community.
RSVP and questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
More info: Pickering is one of the oldest and largest nuclear stations in the world. Its current licence expires in 2018. OPG has applied for yet another licence extension – this time till 2028. But we have much lower cost and safer alternatives to meet our electricity needs, including water power from Quebec. We’re calling on the Ontario government to close the Pickering nuclear station in 2018 when its current licence expires. Read more and sign the petition here.
