Is New Nuclear a Smart Climate Solution?

Thur. Apr. 27, 7 – 8:30 p.m. ET

Watch online OR attend at the Ottawa Quaker Meetinghouse, 91-A Fourth Ave. Ottawa

As the nuclear industry declines worldwide due to an aging inventory, high costs, and increased security risks, the industry is now pegging its hopes on “small modular nuclear reactors” (SMRs) to save the day.

Since they are lower carbon emitting than fossil fuels, the Canadian gov’t, as well as AB, SK, ON and NB provincial gov’ts, are all promising to spend billions on new nuclear to meet their climate commitments.

Why should Canadians be concerned about this new direction in energy policy? How do these new reactors compare with renewables on cost, reliability, danger, and security? Are there connections to nuclear weapons? Are there health concerns? And what are the impacts on First Nations?

Hear leading Canadian anti-nuclear voices:

– Dr. Gordon Edwards, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility

– Dr. Dale Dewar, author of ‘From Hiroshima to Fukushima to You – a primer on radiation and health’

– Candyce Paul, English River First Nation

– Angela Bischoff, Ontario Clean Air Alliance

All welcome. Free. ** This will be a hybrid event – both online and in person at the Ottawa Quaker Meetinghouse, hosted by the Peace and Social Concerns Committee of Ottawa Quakers. When you register, you will be prompted to state whether you’ll join virtually or in person.
