The Pickering Nuclear Generating Station would close this summer if the Green Party of Ontario formed a government, according to leader Mike Schreiner.

Speaking on CBC Radio's Ontario Today, Schreiner said while 1,900 jobs would be lost if the plant closed, others could be created by developing the plant's prime waterfront property.

The party would not close the Bruce or Darlington nuclear generating stations, Schreiner said.
