This is a friendly reminder about the meeting to discuss the future of the Pickering Nuclear site:
Tues. Nov. 19th, 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30)
at the George Ashe Community Centre, Russell Franklin Room, 470 Kingston Road.
We hope to kickstart a community conversation about revitalizing the 600-acre waterfront site currently occupied by the Pickering Nuclear Station. We are pleased that Councillor Maurice Brenner will be joining us to give opening remarks.
After shutdown in 2024, OPG plans to let the station sit idle for 30 years before dismantling it, despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency says that immediate dismantling is “the preferred decommissioning strategy” for nuclear plants.
By immediately dismantling the Pickering nuclear station after shutdown in 2024, we can allow most of its 600-acre waterfront site to be returned to the local community by 2034 for parkland, recreational, facilities, dining, entertainment, housing and offices.
Have a look at what Mississauga has planned for the former site of the Lakeview Coal-fired generating station and think of what Pickering could do with its waterfront.
Come out and learn more. Share your ideas. Join the discussion.
And invite your friends. Thanks.
