Petition: Stop plans to build small nuclear reactors in Saskatchewan to power oil extraction from the Alberta Tar Sands.

“The Saskatchewan government and nuclear industry – with public and corporate money “laundered” through the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) – plan to build a small nuclear reactor to power extraction of oil from the Alberta Tar Sands.

Tar sands oil extraction is incredibly destructive to air, water, land, and entire ecosystems.

Tar sands oil is extremely toxic and flammable. Shipping it is very hazardous.

And Saskatchewan wants to add a third element: hazardous nuclear energy.

If you agree that this is a terrible idea, sign the petition here

Contacting the Saskatchewan government, as well, is a very good idea.
