The McGuinty government in Ontario has announced that it plans to pour an additional $45 billion into nuclear power. It’s a technology that has a proven track record of being unsafe, unsustainable and uneconomical. Many people in Ontario believe that $45 billion in public expenditures could be more safely and effectively invested in renewable energy and conservation. We agree.

While the McGuinty government has taken the position that new nuclear plants are required for Ontario's future electricity requirements, a coalition of environmental groups have released a report outlining how the province's electricity requirements can be met through clean energy projects and efficiency. The report shows that energy efficiency and low-impact renewable energy sources are capable of providing twice the projected electricity needs of Ontario by 2020.

2,4-D is a common herbicide used around the home and garden, on golf courses, ball fields, parks, in agriculture and forestry. Despite industry efforts claiming the safety of this chemical, there is a large body of evidence indicating major health effects, from cancer to immunosuppression, reproductive damage to neurotoxicity. This paper, prepared by the Sierra Club of Canada, aims to provide an overview of the scientific body of evidence demonstrating the toxic effects of 2,4-D.

In December 2005, the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) released a report on electricity planning, which included the recommendation that existing nuclear power reactors in Ontario be refurbished and new nuclear power reactors be built. The Sierra Club of Canada opposes nuclear power because it causes ongoing environmental damage and presents a risk of catastrophic accidents. There are less risky and less damaging sustainable ways of meeting the electricity needs of consumers and industry. In fact, nuclear power is the most expensive and least reliable option.
