It has come to the attention of Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) that the Ontario Clean Air Alliance, an anti-nuclear group, has circulated an e-mail to supporters which included an extract of a previous submission that was submitted to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB).

As a non-partisan trade association, CME would like to reinforce its support of nuclear power and believes it's the backbone of Ontario's electricity system. We have published the following links below that re-clarifies the record.
