Ontario Adults Support Nuclear Power

::.Angus Reid Consultants.::

Angus Reid Global Scan) – Many adults Ontario favour atomic energy, according to a poll by Leger Marketing. 54 per cent of respondents in Canada’s most populous province support the use of nuclear power for generating electricity.

Earlier this month, Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty announced that two nuclear reactors would be refurbished, and two others would be upgraded as part of a strategy to boost the province’s power grid. The Ontario government has said the four reactors would fill 25 per cent of Ontario’s electricity needs when they become fully operational in 2012.

McGuinty is also expected to receive a report from the newly created Ontario Power Authority (OPA) in December.

There are 17 nuclear power reactors in Canada, which supply approximately 14 per cent of the country’s electricity needs.
