In September 2015, the Canadaian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) began delivering KI directly to the homes of every resident within 10 kilometers of nuclear power plants like Darlington nuclear generating station. Greenpeace Canada wants direct delivery to extend farther beyond this six mile radius. The American Thyroid Association is calling for direct delivery of KI to every resident within 50 miles of U.S. reactors.
By November 11, 2015, more than 200,000 homes and businesses in the Greater Toronto Area have now received KI through direct delivery.
On December 1, 2015, the City Council of Toronto passed a motion directing its public health department to prepare a report by March 2016 for the expansion of the KI direct delivery program out to 50 kilometers (31 miles).http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2015.EX10.37
