Let’s save $$ billions, not millions
The NDP has made support for the provincial budget conditional on “reviewing the electricity sector to bring down costs.” This is an excellent start, but rather than focusing on small changes that can save a million here or there, we really need to focus on the multi-billion dollar savings available from ending Ontario’s fixation with using nuclear power at any cost.
With the province struggling to reduce spending and its deficit, there has never been a better time to ditch the “nuclear at any cost” mentality than now! Ontario has paid a steep price for its fixation with costly and underperforming nuclear energy, including racking up more than $20 billion in debt – and we’ve still got the waste and decommissioning to deal with.
