Stop OPG's 30% price increase

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) wants a 30% increase in the price it is paid for nuclear electricity to fund the re-building of its aging Darlington nuclear station. But we don’t need expensive power from re-built Darlington reactors — we can import low-cost, renewable water power from Quebec instead.  It is time for the Ontario Government to negotiate a long-term electricity supply contract with Quebec instead of wasting more money re-building aging and dangerous nuclear reactors.

We can get electricity from Quebec at less than half the cost of electricity from re-built Darlington reactors!

To ensure an economically and environmentally sustainable electricity system for Ontario, the government must step in to stop Ontario Power Generation's request for a 30% price increase for power from its nuclear plants. Instead, the government should negotiate a long-term contract for safer and cleaner water power from Quebec that will cost less than half of what power from OPG's re-built Darlington reactors will cost.
