Vigil/Info Picket Against Nuclear Power and Call for Resignations of Public Energy CEOs in Ontario Ontario Power Generation building (OPG)
Visit Website

We are calling for the resignations of the CEOs of Ontario Power Generation and Toronto Hydro (see below)

*Ontario - a garbage pit for lethal nuclear waste of proposed publicly-unaccountable private reactors, protected by supranational trade agreements and world trade courts, and served with green light of renewable? long-term contracts (unresponsive to either market, people or environment), and public monies by corrupt Ontario energy regulatory bodies and Ontario government?

* Ontario - a secret plutonium-tritium-depleted uranium production factory for pentagon's weapons of mass destruction? - dished on the plate to Ontarians as "electricity" - thousands of MW of new energy supply now that we are using less energy than ever… and now that with falling energy use (efficiencies/conservation/ deflated energy-intensive industry) and $60 billion spare cash, we could champion energy/economic/industrial transformation in Ontario according to the current enviro-economic context of Global Warming and Energy Security.

*Ontario - steer away from Self-Terminating Finite Fossil/Nuclear-Fuels-based war-industry, and lead us to a **100% Publicly-Owned, Integrated/Complementary Renewable enviro-energy-economy for Peace, Sustainability and Prosperity for All.

(**energy efficient infrastructure with in-wired complementary renewable and publicly-owned energy systems [a combination of systems drawing energy from locally, infinitely and copiously available, free organic biodigester / tidal/wind/sun/geo energy sources], producing energy locally for local use.)  If this is not enough to "satisfy demand," then, what is?

Unregulated private power cannot compete against Regulated Public power, planning and oversight. Nuclear and fossil-fuel based energy cannot compete against locally, infinitely and copiously available, free complementary renewable public systems.

Both Regulated Public Power and Complementary Renewable Energy Systems are being kept out of the energy game ballpark globally.  Ontario government is under pressure to give an offering of our collective contributions, our health, our environment, our economy, our collectivity to the forces of omni-destruction.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
