Burlington, Ontario, Canada is a beautiful city located in a triangular-shaped area of the southeastern portion of the province, with Niagara Falls at one corner, Lake Ontario at another corner, and the city of Toronto at the remaining corner. It has a population of about 200,000 people and the area's population density is medium to heavy. It is a city of great beauty: parks, waterways, forests, wildlife, historic landmarks. It's beauty, location, and local economy make it the 3rd most desirable city in which to reside in Canada, all of which could be jeopardized or damaged by the presence of a nuclear power plant.
Since the 2011 Japan earthquake and resulting tsunami, nuclear power plants have lost popularity as a means of producing power. If you recall, the earthquake disabled several nuclear facilities at Fukashima, which melted down releasing radioactive materials into the air and ground. Some experts estimate it will take years and years for the radioactivity to dissipate and many people may yet die.
The area where Burlington is located is prone to earthquakes, too, and a nuclear power plant in the area could cause a catastrophic chain of events that could affect millions of lives, cause astronomical damage, and cost untold billions of dollars! Another con against the building of one is the nuclear waste it would generate. All that radioactive water has to go somewhere and we don't want it going into the waters of Lake Ontario!
I think nuclear power plants are a thing of the past and that there are newer, safer, cleaner ways of generating electricity.
