Maurice Brenner and Kevin Ashe

At the Pickering City Council meeting this coming Monday (December 16th), Councillor Maurice Brenner and Regional Councillor Kevin Ashe will be moving a motion calling for the decommissioning and dismantling of the Pickering Nuclear Station as expeditiously as possible after it is shutdown in 2024.

Immediate dismantling of this 53-year-old plant will open the way for the revitalization of Pickering’s waterfront. It will also create 16,000 person-years of employment in Pickering between 2024 and 2034.

To learn more about the benefits of immediate dismantling, see our short report: Making the Right Choice for Pickering’s Waterfront.
