Pickering is a city in south central Ontario which is home to nuclear power plants. One of the plants were closed a few years ago due to the fact that it was old and unsafe although it is apparently going to be reopened. Protests and safety and environmental concerns are hampering its progress, although the provincial government is ignoring public outcry.

Neighbouring the Pickering nukes is the Darlington nuke which is still in operation. Tours of these fantastic power generation facilities may be arranged by contacting Ontario Power Generaton.
