The Billion Dollar Question that Tim Hudak needs to answer:
Will he leave taxpayers on the hook for nuclear project bailouts?

This is the question that Tim Hudak, Leader of the Opposition, is refusing to answer.

Every nuclear project in Ontario’s history has gone massively over budget. If the nuclear industry is given another blank cheque to rebuild its aging reactors at the Darlington Nuclear station, Ontario’s hard working families will once again be on the hook for billions of dollars of cost overruns.

We need your help to persuade Mr. Hudak to answer this question before the October 6th provincial election. All the other major party leaders have answered. Voters deserve to hear from the Conservatives.

Here’s what you can do right now:

  1. Order our new pamphlet, The Billion Dollar Question That Tim Hudak Needs To Answer, and distribute it to your friends, co-workers and neighbours. They’re free, colorful and informative!
  2. Email Mr. Hudak and ask him if he’ll stand up for Ontario’s hard working families and promise to not allow nuclear power companies to pass their future cost overruns onto consumers and taxpayers. You deserve accountability on these massive electrical investments; and
  3. Please donate $50, $100, $500 or $1,000 to the Ontario Clean Air Alliance to help us print and distribute tens of thousands of copies across the province of The Billion Dollar Question That Tim Hudak Needs To Answer before October 6th. Help us reach all Ontarians. Donate here.

And if you’re in Toronto, join OCAA’s Chair Jack Gibbons and me in a discussion about the upcoming election, energy issues, and how you can plug in:

Thur. Sept. 8, 7 – 8 p.m. at Metro Hall, 55 John St., Toronto

Thank you for your help and support. Let’s make nuclear bailouts an election issue.
