- If the evacuation zone had expanded to 100, 200 or 300 kilometers, it would have included the whole Kanto region. That would have forced 30 million people to evacuate, compromising the very existence of the Japanese nation. That's the biggest reason why I changed my views on nuclear power. If there are risks of accidents that could make half the land mass of our country uninhabitable, we cannot afford to take such risks, even if we are only going to be playing with those risks once a century. – Ex-Japanese Prime Minister Kan

- With a very important Ontario election underway, we are asking PC Leader Tim Hudak and all other election candidates to sign our Electricity Consumer Protection Pledge and promise Ontario’s hard working families that they will not allow nuclear companies to pass their future cost overruns onto consumers and taxpayers. Send your letter now! And order our free The Billion Dollar Question That Tim Hudak Needs To Answer pamphlets to distribute in your riding. All ON taxpayers need to see this messaging!
