Dear [YOUR MPP’S NAME]
As a constituent living in your riding, I am writing to express my support for the Ontario nuclear industry.
When you really get down to it, nothing is more important than health, and that is why I support nuclear power.
Ontario’s nuclear plants provide 60 percent of Ontario’s electricity, but also 70 percent of the world’s supply of Cobalt-60, a lifesaving medical isotope. The Cobalt-60 from Ontario’s nuclear plants is used to sterilize medical equipment, keep food safe, treat cancer, and fight diseases like malaria and the Zika virus.
There are only a handful of facilities around the world that can produce Cobalt-60, and Ontario is essential to that global supply. Extending the life of our current nuclear fleet will also mean extending the lives of patients around the world.
As a citizen of Ontario I ask that you examine the facts and make the sound and prudent decision to support Ontario nuclear.
“Investing in nuclear refurbishment at the Darlington and Bruce Power facilities will provide a welcome boost to Ontario’s economy and support affordable and reliable baseload energy.”
“Nuclear power, which generates zero greenhouse gas emissions and plays a key role in making Ontario one of the lowest GHG-emitting electricity jurisdictions in the world, should continue to be explored as a cost-effective energy option.”
“Through the life-extension investments at Darlington and Bruce Power, as well as operating the Pickering station until 2024, the region will continue to benefit from low-cost, clean and reliable power, while supporting economic growth and job creation over the coming decades.”
“Between 2017 and 2064, clean nuclear, when compared to alternatives, will avoid between $12 billion and $63 billion in carbon costs that ratepayers would have to fund if this output was replaced by fossil fuels.”
“The Bruce Power and OPG life-extension programs are important to ensure a cost-competitive supply of electricity and represent billions of dollars of supply chain opportunities for Ontario manufacturers.”
Ontario’s nuclear facilities create jobs and economic growth in communities across the province. Meet some of the people working in our industry
