Indian nuclear deal seen as ‘end-run’ around non-proliferation treaty The transfer of nuclear materials for whatever purpose to a country that is not part of the NPT is a violation of the treaty. And here’s another take on the nuclear deal with India by Ontarian Paul McKay. Canadians should view Harper not as a patriot, but as a huckster from hell. This is because India presents a past, present and future danger as a nuclear weapons proliferator

Take Action!

Looking for a Champion at Queen’s Park! Premier McGuinty and Tim Hudak have been very clear that they plan to spend tens of billions on new nuclear projects.  Meanwhile, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has sat on the fence on this issue. If you’d like to encourage the NDP to take political leadership on this issue, and clearly position themselves against all new nuclear projects in the province, please order copies of our new leaflet, $35 billion to rebuild the Darlington nuclear station vs. $16 billion for 2.3 million home energy retrofits - Which will Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath choose? 
 
Guelph deserves respect!  Please email Energy Minister Chris Bentley and Guelph MPP Liz Sandals and ask them to direct the Ontario Power Authority to work with the City of Guelph to implement its Community Energy Plan in order to reduce our energy bills, protect our neighbourhoods, create jobs in Guelph, and avoid the need for the proposed Guelph Transmission Line.
 
Ask NDP Leader Andrea Horwath to oppose the Darlington rebuild. Send a letter here. And if you’re up for helping blitz subway stations and door-to-door, let me know. Thanks!
 
Send a letter to Premier McGuinty asking for an environmental review of the Darlington rebuild project.
