My Nuclear Neighbour
Imagine that one morning you wake up to find out your nearest neighbour may be a nuclear power plant.
This is a story of global importance – it’s also a very local story. The tale of two small towns: one in rural Ontario that has been a centre of nuclear power almost as long as there has been nuclear power. The other is home to farmers who woke up one day to hear that Alberta’s first nuclear power facility is going to be moving in next door.
We travel with Lorraine Jensen and Brenda McSween from their farms in Peace River, Alberta to Kincardine, Ontario searching for answers to questions that are devastating their families and threatening their once harmonious community.
