Nuclear Phase-Out

CELA is a founding member of the Campaign for Nuclear Phaseout (CNP), a national coalition of over 200 organizations who support the phase-out of Canada's nuclear power program on environmental, health and safety, economic and ethical grounds. CELA is strongly opposed to any attempts to revive this industry as a misguided solution to the problems of climate change.

Below are collected publications, articles and media releases written by CELA and in conjunction with members of CNP.
