Update on Nuclear New Build

OPG is appealing to the Federal Court of Appeal the Federal Court’s May 14, 2014 judgement regarding the Darlington New Nuclear Power Plant Project.
 
OPG believes there are aspects of the May 14, 2014 Federal Court decision that contain errors of law with respect to the Court’s interpretation of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, and the manner in which it reviewed the assessment done by the Joint Review Panel.
