Group sign-up: stop funding proposed nukes (SMRs)!

Visit crednb.ca for information missing from industry and government websites about nuclear power

Dear friends and colleagues:

The Canadian government is funding private-sector nuclear companies to develop new nuclear reactors (small modular nuclear reactors – SMRs). To slow down the funding and fight for a renewable energy future, the national no-SMR action group is asking for your solidarity from groups across Canada. Please ask your group to endorse this statement (below) and share this message widely in your networks.

Are you a member of a group or organization that wants a renewable energy future and a sustainable planet? Is your group opposed to the production of more radioactive waste across Canada? Is your group concerned about nuclear proliferation? Are you appalled at government handouts to corporations for untried reactors that will cost billions? Are you for real action against climate change?

If yes, ask your group to read and sign-on to the national public statement opposing federal funding for new nuclear reactors (small modular nuclear reactors – SMRs). This request is for all: small community groups, chapters of national networks, regional and national organizations, unions and union locals, faith groups, municipalities, Indigenous organizations and nations – all who want a renewable energy future and real climate action.

The national no-SMR action group will share the statement and endorsing groups with government representatives and the media, to demonstrate the strength of support across Canada for a renewable energy future.

The statement is hosted by the Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA).
