Ride for Renewables! No more nuclear bailouts!

Ontario Clean Air Alliance: Jessica Fracassi - June 17, 2009

On Sunday June 28th, hundreds of cyclists will ride with a message - we want a 100% renewable energy grid. Join us for all or part of this 50 km journey along the shores of Lake ON.

Starting at 9 a.m. at the wind turbine at the Exhibition Grounds in Toronto, the group will ride along the lakeshore, stopping at various sites along the way to discuss renewable electricity options for Ontario. The ride will terminate with a rally at 3:30 p.m. at the wind turbine at Pickering Nuclear Power station. Most cyclists will then ride the GO Train home.

Ontario can have a 100% renewable electricity grid within 20 years. Neither federal nor provincial taxpayers should subsidize nuclear power when there are greener and lower cost options to meet all our electricity needs. We say NO to the proposed new nuclear reactors at Darlington power station that Premier McGuinty is asking Prime Minister Harper to subsidize, and YES to conservation and renewable energy including wind, solar, biomass, hydro, geothermal, and more.
