Voting Time Focuses the Mind
Ontario’s recent decision not to build two new reactors at Darlington is bad news for the long-term sustainability of Canada’s nuclear industry. Add the federal government’s steady “walk away” from AECL and nuclear R&D funding, and one could get downright depressed. It appears Ontario is betting the farm on vast, cheap imported shale gas. In the latter instance, one gets the impression that if it doesn’t come out of the ground for export, there is no value to the Canadian economy.
