Ontario Government Launches Full Investigation Into Yesterday’s Pickering Nuclear Alert

The Ontario government says it will fully investigate how a false alarm about an incident at the Pickering nuclear power plant could have happened. People across the province woke up to the alert yesterday morning, which warned of an unspecified incident that didn’t require any evacuations. Another alert was sent shortly after stating that the original message had been sent in error. The Provincial Emergency Operations Centre, which controls public alerts, says the false alarm happened during a training exercise.
