Action Alert: Call Minister Mel Knight on his Biased Nuclear Panel — Demand Action Now!

Sierra Club of Canada — Prairie Chapter

What began as concern early last week over the Alberta government's close ties to the nuclear industry, with nuclear giant Bruce Power hiring former Conservative campaign manager Randy Dawson, ended in yet a stonger confirmation of their pro-nuclear stance with the recent formation of Energy Minister Mel Knight's Nuclear Panel. Drawing widespread opposition for its obvious nuclear bias, the current panel has 4 members — all of whose expertise is primarily in business and energy economics and policy. One panelist, John Luxat, used to be the president of the Canadian Nuclear Society, a pro-nuclear lobby group. The nuclear panel of "experts" lacks environmental and health experts and is proof that Stelmach’s government is biased regarding the issue of Nuclear Energy. Opposition to the panel is building, and concern about the health, safety, social, economic, and environmental impacts related to nuclear energy are growing! Read more »
