Canada’s Environment Minister refuses to declare his support for nuclear energy

Guilbeault refuses to declare his support of nuclear energy iPolitics, By Aidan Chamandy. Nov 5, 2021 Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault says “it’s not up to the government to decide” which sources of energy will reduce the country’s greenhouse-gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

Nor would he say explicitly whether he supports nuclear energy, which he’d opposed in his work before entering politics in 2019……

Before running for the Liberals in 2019, Guilbeault worked for decades as an environmental activist for Greenpeace and Équiterre.

In 2018, he said the Pickering nuclear plant in Ontario should be shut down and replaced with other forms of renewable energy.
