"The G.E. processing plant at Lansdowne (Toronto) and Dupont must be closed for the public health benefit of the people who live surrounding those plants, and for the public health benefit of the people of the planet.
They're death dealing plants, they are medically contra-indicated. And for the health of your children, your grandchildren and all future generations those plants must be closed down forthwith."
-Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nov. 1, 2012
"Hey G.W. Bush we found the weapons of mass destruction! And they're here in Toronto's West end!"

"There's a GE Hitachi plant that processes uranium for the Canadian nuclear industry right on Lansdowne and Dupont. You probably never heard about it because practically it's been kept a secret. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission renewed the license for that plant in 2010, knowing that there are trucks lugging radioactive material in and out of the residential area in which the plant is located. Remember that these regulatory Boards and Commission are automatically biased towards the industry they regulate until the public pressures them into actually scrutinizing anything. Even if the plant is perfectly safe, it's just not right that the residents had zero say in the license renewal. But we all know it's not perfectly safe."
