True, about 60%. Note however the Pickering is shutting down 2 reactors in 2022, and the rest in 2024. That represents about 25% of the operational nuclear power in Ontario. The other 2 nuclear stations are planned for closure between 25-40 years in the future.
Good to know. There is a geological fault line extending from the St Lawrence through Southern Ontario, surrounded by 7 nuclear reactors.
Uhh... no it isn't. If you truly want to stop climate change, you should be hoping the reactors run as long as possible, or are replaced with new reactors in the near future.

Ontario shares a power grid with large sections of the united states. If we aren't generating electricity via nuclear, we may end up importing electricity from the U.S., and they use a lot more fossil fuels for their power generation. Result: More global warming.
