Nuclear alert investigation won't be long and drawn out, minister says

BY , Jan 13, 2020 6:27 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Apr 24, 2020 3:31 PM

Ontario's solicitor general says she wants the investigation into a mistaken alert about an incident at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station to be completed fairly quickly.

Sylvia Jones says it's very important that the people of Ontario know exactly what happened, and she doesn't expect there to be a long, drawn-out investigation.

The province announced the investigation on Sunday, hours after an alert was pushed to cellphones, radios and TVs across the province at about 7:30 a.m.

Jones says initial observations suggest it was human error during a routine test of the emergency alert system that happens twice a day.
