According to the article , even the Sierra Club is starting to edge toward the truth that nuclear power is safe and environmentally clean.

Yep, it's essential in Alberta. I get nightmares at night about the CO2 impact of extracting from those oil sands. At least with nuclear it's only about as bad as conventional oil.

Let's Hope that No Weapons Grade Plutonium Accidently get shipped from Westinghouse Nuclear USA in Festus Missori to an UnGuarded Canadian Nuclear Waste Incinerator like what happened AFTER 911, like what happened in Brampton GTA Greater Toronto Area Ontario. Details at http://www.nukefreepeel.org
at other end of the SAME City where a Terrorist Trial is Being held. Nukefreepeel.org reps went to Ottawa to Tell Stephen Dion While he was the Environment Minister FYI

Well, we just put an offer on a house in Peace River, I'm seriously thinking about backing out. Right now top dollars are being paid for housing, but if this goes through housing prices will drop drastically. I don't want be stuck with a huge mortage, no way to sell and be beside a nuclear plant!

Hey, if they build a $6.2 BILLION dollar reactor, it won't be "right next to your house", it'll be several miles out of town, probably downriver.
And, if they have 5,000 people employed for the construction phase and I don't know how many hundreds and hundreds of employees and support staff, contractors, etc, working there after commissioning the reactor, house prices are certain to rise, not fall, due to the building boom and demand for housing.
I say BRING IT ON BABY! Build that thing near Whitecourt and there will be prosperity for years to come.
Does anyone really think we can continue relying on fossil fuels in the years to come? Does anyone realize how much natural gas the oilsands are burning through to continue their current production?
Anybody heard of Peak Oil?
Hello??? McFly???
And safety has come a long, long way from early (flawed) reactor designs, so I'm not worried in the least.

You will be waiting a long time, maybe forever. I suggest waiting for natural gas or propane explosions, they happen regularly.

Here in the US, the opposite happens.

The Next phase Might Be to Effect Changes to Old Vet Pensions ?

BCE aka Bell Canada proposing changes to retiree Health Benefits so

maybe this is next info to flow from this Dealio...?

Described by one prominent US-based business columnist as a “deal from hell,” perhaps no other combination of companies illustrates the perils of merging operations than the recently unwound Daimler-Benz/Chrysler adventure.

Daimler is actually paying about USD1.5 billion to get out from under Chrysler’s healthcare obligations to workers and retirees.

What seemed manageable nine years ago when the automakers combined to form DaimlerChrysler is now driving the companies apart.

(Cerberus is investing USD7.4 billion in cash, of which USD1.35 billion will go to Daimler.

Also, Daimler will invest USD2.5 billion in cash in Chrysler and lend it another USD400 million.

Daimler ends up about USD1.5 billion out of pocket but also gets a 19.9 percent stake in the new Chrysler.)

Don't build a Russian reactor and put Soviet bureaucrats in charge.

So far there is no evidence of any increase in birth defects among those who lived near Chernobyl or among the Japanese survivors of the atomic bombs. The more likely population for such an outcome would be the people who lived along the Techa River. Based on the situation in Ramsur Iran, that is an unlikely result.

None of which has anything to do with RERF research.

The Ignorance Level of Atomic Energy Canada who is also the regulator Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission CNSC that they expect of the Public is still interesting as Rivers Warming are causing problems in other parts of the Globe to Cool Off Out put H20 to such a degree that performance efficiencies are Dropping & other details

Bertell is a fraud. I discovered that 20 years ago when I heard her speak and read her book.
