Statement by Ontario NDP Energy critic Peter Tabuns on the Pickering false alarm

On behalf of the Official Opposition, thank you to all of the personnel and first responders responsible for the safe operation of our power generation facilities.

We are deeply troubled that families were unnecessarily given reason to worry about their safety this morning. We need a full and transparent investigation into how a false alarm was triggered, and how all breakdowns in communication occurred.

Confidence in the accuracy of the system is essential for public safety.
