Sign on to Shut Down Pt. Lepreau Nuclear Power Plant, NB
Point Lepreau nuclear power plant is being recommissioned - a project that is now one year behind schedule and hundreds of millions of dollars over budget.
We believe that the timing is right for the recommissioning to become a decommissioning, in order to protect the health of the people and environment, increase investment in renewable energy and energy conservation, keep electricity rates down, and save tax dollars.
As New Brunswickers go to the polls on September 27th, please take a moment to tell federal and provincial leaders it's time to rethink Point Lepreau.
For more information, please go here.
PLEASE SIGN ON:
We, the undersigned concerned groups and citizens, are concerned that the nuclear generating station at Point Lepreau, New Brunswick,
i) is poisoning the air, land, waters, people and all other life forms who live there;
ii) operates with radioactive fuel that is poisoning the air, land, waters, people and all other life forms; wherever nuclear fuel is mined, processed and transported;
iii) is an unnecessary economic burden on the people of New Brunswick;
iv) is an unsafe operation undergoing untested and untried first-of-a-kind refurbishment of aging and damaged equipment in a populated area
v) is proceeding without consultation with or permission from the indigenous people of the territory
We herewith demand that:
no further monies be spent on nuclear energy in New Brunswick,
- and –
plans to decommission the reactor at Point Lepreau begin immediately.
