MAKING REAL CHANGE: A NATIONAL STRATEGY ON NUCLEAR POWER

Our campaigns focus on tangible and achievable change. Instituting a national strategy on fourth generation nuclear power is within reach. The disruption that climate change is going to cause has never been seen before. To effectively combat it safe and efficient nuclear power is absolutely necessary. 

Why a National Strategy on Nuclear Power?

  1. Urgency

  2. Effectiveness

  3. Efficiency

  4. Safety

  5. Operability

The current climate crisis has made everything regarding emissions urgent. Nuclear power is not excluded from this. There cannot be any stone left unturned and nuclear should play a significant role alongside renewables. There is no doubt that other renewables are crucial in the fight as well, but none provide the consistent base power that is required for centralized electricity grids. Nuclear is the only clean option. Fourth generation nuclear power, with its advanced technology, also presents the densest energy yields. Importantly, the new technology is many times safer than previous generations of nuclear, that have been remarkably safe despite unfounded fears. Lastly, as the new reactors are smaller, they can provide electricity to remote and rural areas, which previous nuclear could never do. We do not advocate for solely nuclear energy, but we recognize that there is a need to make it easier for firms to produce nuclear reactors in Canada if we are to meet our climate change goals.

What is the Plan?

  1. Develop the Policy

  2. Build Public Support

  3. Pressure Elected Officials

  4. Pool Resources

  5. Campaign for Adoption by Parties

We have developed a comprehensive policy document that can be viewed in the above link. It demonstrates a realistic path towards realization in national parliament. Our goal now is to gather public support for such a policy. Through persuasive use of social media and sharing by our supporters we can get public opinion on our side. Next, we are circulating a petition and submitting letters to elected officials to demonstrate the widespread support for electoral reform. We are also working with like-minded organizations to pool resources, amplifying our voice and influence. Lastly, our campaign is targeting key electoral districts that could increase the likelihood of adoption by political parties and could decide the outcome of the election.

How to take action?

  1. Call your MPP

  2. Join a Political Party and Call them to Action

  3. Sign our Petition

  4. Support our Cause

We could use all the help we can get. Want to help out?

The first thing you can do is sign up for our newsletter. This is our primary form of direct communication with our supporters. We coordinate calls to action on MPPs for the strongest effect. If you aren't already a member of a political party, you can join one today and become a voice from the inside calling for a national strategy on nuclear energy. When we circulate petitions be sure to sign it, the more that do, the more persuasive our calls to action are and this includes are letters to officials. Lastly, if you can, support our cause directly. A one-time $10 donation makes you member for life and we are also always looking for volunteers.
