Event description

Description

Join the discussion about revitalizing the 600-acre waterfront site currently occupied by the Pickering Nuclear Station.


The 53-year-old Pickering Nuclear Station with its 8 reactors is one of the world's oldest and largest nuclear stations. Just 30 km from the centre of Toronto, the plant is surrounded by 2.2 million people (within 30 km). It is scheduled to close in 2024.


After shutdown, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is planning to mothball the station for 30 years before dismantling it, despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency says that immediate dismantling is “the preferred decommissioning strategy” for nuclear plants.


By immediately dismantling the Pickering nuclear station after shut-down in 2024, we can permit most of its 600-acre waterfront site to be returned to the local community by 2034 for parkland, recreational, facilities, dining, entertainment, housing and offices.


Come out and learn more. Share your ideas. Join the discussion.


Free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
