11 dopers fired from Pickering Nuclear Reactor

The Ontario government and the provincial power authority say the safety of citizens was not placed in jeopardy when a group of workers allegedly indulged in “drug-related activity” while on the job.

On November 18, 11 workers at the Pickering nuclear power plant were fired over allegations of drug use, a violation of Ontario Power Generation’s code of conduct that prohibits drug use while on the job.

The workers were all support staff at the plant, the power authority said in a statement.

“When allegations were made of drug-related activity — and it should be emphasized these are still only allegations — we took prompt action to ensure there was not a safety issue and that the plant and the public were protected,” Ontario Power Generation said in a statement.

“After an internal investigation, co-ordinated with the police, we validated this was not a safety issue and was not a question of fitness for duty.”

The authority didn’t reveal further details of the case, citing “privacy laws.”

So the Ontario government says it's OK to operate a nuclear power plant while impaired. I would suggest the next person that is charged with impaired driving ask the court to explain how driving a car while impaired is dangerous but operating a nuke plant isn't.

I think you're reading that sentence wrong.

They're not condoning drug-impaired activity in the workforce. They're just saying that in this particular case, there is no cause for concern of safety.

Can you explain how support staff 'operate' a nuclear power plant?

Nowhere does it say operators, it says "a group of workers" . That could mean janitors or cafeteria staff or even security but not the people that control the plant.

No concern for safety =Media damage control.

They were fired, but apparently Cannuck is looking for an in to come to Ontario and do a bit of drinking and driving.

I think that happens if anyone thinks about any of your responses.

Clean toilets are the keystone of a successful and safe nuke.

I have a late family member who was an engineer at the Bruce years ago. he was telling me after a very suspicious car accident that left him basically a paraplegic, that he had just prior to the accident, confided to his engineer buddies on poker night that he smoked Pot...
I always had a creepy feeling about that...cause and effect...

The drug use did not interfere with their ability to order a large pizza with double cheese and extra pepperoni. Always was my favorite after smoking a big fat one.

Are you related to MHz? Ever been dmoked by a piece of heavy equipment?

Should we talk about the climate change scam?

because you seem to have dragged your idiosyncrasies in from another thread about radiation and pills... I'll post this there too so everyone can see:

"However, the pills don't protect against any other form of radiation exposure nor do they protect any other organ. They can't reverse damage that has already occurred. Radiation pills aren't effective for persons over the age of 40 because their thyroid activity doesn't cause them to suffer much of an effect from iodine radioisotope exposure."

I don't think radiation briandamage is your problem at the moment
I think being exposed as a no Knot IS.

Let me see if I got your order right, a extra double large pizza with cheese and pepperoni?

That comment was for Pete.
We could try and start here as radiation effects should be similar no matter where it happens. The exposure effects should be similar, such as birth defects in Iraq and births near the damage in Japan. If Japan isn't an example of a bad situation at a nuclear plant then they can save some money as nobody in North America is in any danger until an event happens that is bigger than the one in Japan. Chernobyl was documented as far as the orphanages were concerned.

Multiple what? I hope I don't use 'we' when the term 'I' would be more truthful. So far when some have been asked why they do it a reply is usually not forth coming even after some badgering.

What was suspicious about the car accident?

Are you suggesting it was a set up because he said he smoked pot?
