Dear Mr. Hankinson:
For the second time in less than three weeks, NB Power has refused to publicly debate Energy Probe on the future of nuclear power in New Brunswick, this time on the CBC news magazine show “Focal Point”.
The Point Lepreau nuclear generating station is the largest single industrial investment of the citizens of the province and its ongoing operation constitutes one of the province’s most significant environmental issues. The citizens of New Brunswick are harmed by your decision to avoid an open dialogue about nuclear energy in the province. By failing to expose your decisions and actions to scrutiny and challenge, the public has lost another opportunity to better understand the scope and import of the issues.
For the sake of a better informed citizenry, Energy Probe urges you to reconsider your disturbing policy.
