Ontario’s electricity prices are 50% to 90% higher than Manitoba’s and Quebec’s. The reason is simple. While Quebec and Manitoba have built their electricity systems around low-cost water power, Ontario has bet big — and lost — on high cost nuclear. Now the province wants to dig itself into an even deeper hole by rebuilding 10 aging reactors. At the same time, the Ford Government has slashed energy efficiency programs, torn up renewable power contracts and refused to make a deal with Quebec for low-cost water power. All to protect a nuclear industry that is largely obsolete and in decline worldwide. It’s time to end the nuclear gravy train and adopt more sensible options for keeping our lights on and our communities safe. This pamphlet explains the benefits of defunding nuclear now.
