Statement | Friday, October 31, 2008 - 16:00

The Council of Canadians rejects nuclear power because it poses an unacceptable risk to people and the environment. It is neither clean, safe, peaceful, nor economic. We are opposed to the further expansion of nuclear power in our country. Faced with climate change and diminishing energy resources globally, we recognize the need for a just transition away from a fossil fuel and nuclear dependent society, while ensuring Canadians access to basic energy needs, to sustainable, publicly funded and publicly delivered energy alternatives that benefit both workers and their communities.

Ottawa – The Council of Canadians and MiningWatch Canada have made public a report drafted by Environment Canada in December 2007 revealing that the agency had documented crucial information regarding the looming freshwater crisis in Canada.

The report, titled “A Federal Perspective on Water Quantity Issues,” which was obtained through an Access To Information request warns "there may be heightened risk for jurisdictional conflict for water allocation between provinces and also between Canada and the United States."

We do not endorse candidates, parties or holders of public office but we may support positions taken which are consistent with our own. However, we always retain our independence and freedom of action.
In keeping with this policy of non-partisanship the Council of Canadians does not share our membership lists, use the Council's name in a partisan way, or engage in the internal matters of a political party.
