Tiverton | by Kevin Bernard  

The online petition shows support for the future of the Bruce Power Nuclear Plant.

More than 6,400 people from across Ontario have signed an online petition to show their support for the future of Bruce Power.

It's part of the Ministry of Energy's Long-Term Energy Plan Review.

The petition was launched by several groups including the Canadian Nuclear Workers' Council, the Grey Bruce Labour Council, and the Power Workers' Union.

The goal is to show the provincial government there is deep grassroots support for the continued operation of Bruce Power as an eight-unit site.

President of the Canadian Nuclear Workers Council, Dave Shier says it can be difficult to have your individual voice heard during a large-scale consultation such as the Long-Term Energy Plan Review, so he thanks everyone who took the time to sign the petition,

It has been submitted to the Ministry of Energy and he expects it will show the large amount of support in the area and across Ontario, for the Life-Extension Program at Bruce Power and the operation of the site's eight units through 2064.

The Ministry of Energy wrapped up its Long-Term Energy Plan Review public consultation period on Dec. 16th.
