Sign Your Support for Impact Assessment of Small Modular Reactors

SMRs were removed from Designated Projects list requiring a federal Impact Assessment, due to lobbying by both the nuclear industry and the nuclear regulator (CNSC), responding to the draft new 2019 Impact Assessment Act. So this part of a federally regulated industry now does not get assessed under the federal IA Act! This constitutes ‘deregulation’ – the claim by the nuclear industry, that the narrow ‘environmental assessment’ under the regulator CNSC procedures is ‘equivalent’ to an IA, is FALSE. So CRED-NB has made a reasoned, researched, comprehensive argument requesting that Minister Guilbeault use his powers to designate the SMRs slated for the Lepreau site, for a full Impact Assessment under the federal IA Act.

The CRED website has more details – The info page on the CRED-NB site is HERE.

Please sign on to our Action Letter CLICK HERE which sends a letter of support to the Minister for our request. We need as many letters going to Minister Guilbeault as possible, as there will be resistance and we need overwhelming numbers, so please send this news along to anyone who cares about the related issues in New Brunswick or across Canada.

We also have a Facebook posting (July 4th) to share https://www.facebook.com/crednb

Thank you for your support!
