The Canadian nuclear industry is in a period of demoralization and confusion, brought about by a number of embarrassing technological and managerial failures as well as the inability to find an adequate market for their reactors. By Dr. Gordon Edwards, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility

The cost of new nuclear would be 50 per cent more than the cost of wind power, triple the cost of water power imports from Quebec or natural gas-fired generation, and five times more than what we are paying our manufacturers to increase their energy efficiency. It's time to put consumers and taxpayers first. No more blank cheques for the nuclear industry.
