Representatives from OPG and the CNSC responded to questions and concerns about the licence renewal and concerns regarding safety and sustainability of nuclear power. The MNO Lands, Resources and Consultations Branch were taken on a tour of the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station, which offered an inside look at some of the site’s operations.
