ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposed development of nuclear power plants in Northern Ontario. According to environmentalists, nuclear power is the only technology ready to fill the electric supply gap and stop carbon dioxide loading of the atmosphere. The author believes that nuclear power plants should be built near Timmins and Sudbury where mining and smelting activities created the largest demand for electric power supply.
