The MPP for Parkdale-High Park has called for the immediate shutdown of GE’s uranium pellet plant in Toronto’s west-end. In recent weeks, residents located around the General Electric plant on Landsdowne Avenue, have learned that the facility also houses a uranium pellet manufacturing plant under the name GE Hitachi. On Nov. 15, the community held a public meeting to learn about the facility and voice opinions.
Ontario should be a little more like Sweden, Parkdale-High Park incumbent MPP Cheri DiNovo says. The veteran NDP candidate pointed to the Nordic nation when the Swansea Town Hall provincial election debate turned to trade on Sunday, less than a week before the Oct. 6 vote.
On Monday night, as Peggy Nash celebrated her to return to Parliament as MP for Parkdale-High Park, nobody was happier than Sarah Doucette. The Toronto City Councillor for Ward 18, Doucette cited Nash for spurring her to enter municipal politics last fall.
