Canadian province reports 'incident' at nuclear power station near Toronto

OTTAWA, Jan 12 (Reuters) - The Canadian province of Ontario on Sunday reported an “incident” at the Pickering nuclear power station near Toronto but said there had been no abnormal release of radioactivity.

“Emergency staff are responding to the situation,” it said in an alert sent to cell phone users across the province. People living near the station - on the shores of Lake Ontario some 50 km (30 miles) east of downtown Toronto - did not need to take protective actions at this time, it said.
