CELA has done excellent research on issues such as weak public safety measures around nuclear plants in Ontario and on Ontario’s inadequate nuclear waste system. Their highly informative research and interventions in hearings on nuclear facility licensing have brought to light many shortcomings in our nuclear regulatory system that endanger human health and human life. Few other organizations can match the depth of knowledge that CELA brings to these issues and few others have consistently pursued these issues. CELA’s work has led to major improvements in nuclear safety, including wider distribution of KI pills and action on long-overdue emergency planning. They are also an invaluable resource for information on new legislation proposed by government, often providing detailed analysis of new laws and how they will affect environmental protection. CELA always takes a rigorous evidence-based approach to its interventions and analysis, making its submissions highly credible and extremely informative.
