Peace River nuclear debate posted on YouTube

Nuclear power is indeed a hot button issue facing Albertans. Over the past 2 ½  years Nuclear Proponents such as Bruce Power have been spending millions of dollars on a campaign to convince Albertans that building a Nuclear Power plant or more in Alberta would be good for us. On the other side of the table, ordinary citizens, community and environmental groups have spent countless hours of volunteer time and resources to research the potential implications of nuclear power. Although the proponents claim that nuclear power is cheap, clean, safe, and the only real solution to climate change, the opponents see nuclear power as actually being very expensive, not so clean, would contribute to increased nuclear weapons proliferation and that nuclear power would take too long to implement to make any difference on climate change.

What do you know about nuclear power? Here is your chance to learn more about the pros and cons of nuclear power without too much trouble. The Peace River Environmental Society has teamed up with Citizens Against Nuclear Development, the Coalition for a Nuclear Free Alberta, and the Canadian Nuclear Society to bring some excellent speakers to Alberta and the Peace Region for a lively debate.

If you were unable to attend the Oct 21st 2009 debate in Peace River you can access the video footage of this event on YouTube from the comfort of your own home. Read more »

Coalition Launches Green Ribbon Campaign

14 Sep 2009
The Coalition for a Nuclear Free Alberta (CNFA), comprised of a number of Alberta grassroots organizations, launched its province-wide Green Ribbon campaign today to try and convince the provincial government that investing in green renewable energy sources is the right choice for meeting our future electricity needs rather than the the costly and risky nuclear option being considered.

"The government has stated it will set policy on nuclear before the end of the fall sitting of the Legislature," says Adele Boucher Rymhs, President of the Coalition.
