Polling done for the OCAA by OraclePoll Research shows a  high level of concern about locating a new reactor in the GTA among area residents:

  • Fifty-five percent of people polled were concerned or very concerned with the safety risks of having reactors near cities
  • A strong majority of respondents said we need to take immediate action on climate and cannot wait for a new reactor to be built
  • More than three-quarters of residents said knowing that the technology has never been tested would make them less likely to support the project.
  • An 82% majority do not think a new nuclear reactor should be built before there is a permanent safe storage space for nuclear waste.
  • Obtaining electricity from wind, solar, energy conservation and waterpower from Quebec was the preferred option to 73% of residents.
