Tragedy in Japan triggers re-examination of nuclear energy

The horrifying tragedy unfolding in Japan is all the more shocking as it is occurring in one of the world’s most economically developed and technically advanced countries. The experience reminds us all how modest our abilities are to control the forces of nature.

For the immediate future our attention should be focused on helping with the humanitarian aid which will be required to deal with a tragedy of this magnitude.

In addition, these events have already triggered a re-examination of the role of nuclear energy in jurisdictions around the world. Safety concerns deserve to be an important factor as we consider our energy
future in Ontario.

    The nuclear safety issue in my view is just one of many reasons that we should use to drop the moratorium talk and hold the course in renewable energy development. Combine this with conservation efforts and capacity development for more hydro imports from Quebec and perhaps we could retire our nuclear plants at the end of their lifespan.
