According to a report in the Calgary Herald, an Alberta company has filed for a license to build a nuclear reactor.

The prospect of a nuclear-fuelled Alberta moved closer to reality after a Calgary-based company filed for a licence to build the province’s first reactor.
Energy Alberta Corp. said late Monday it has formally requested permission from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission to construct a pair of twin-unit Candu reactors about 500 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
That’s Peace River country where, I believe, some pristine wilderness still exists. I hope Albertans care more for their environment than they do for profits — not that nukes profit anyone except big business — and put an end to this nonsense. It’s simply another way to buy into the military-industrial complex. not to mention what it will do to the environment, the ecological systems, the animals, including those human ones who will work with the uranium.
Here’s the joke:
Energy Alberta Corporation is an Alberta based provider of clean energy. Our mission is to provide clean, emission-free energy, utilizing advanced and proven nuclear technology to supply oil sands operators and the province of Alberta with a reliable flow of electricity at a competitive cost.
Expect as well, from the proponents of these lies, an ecologically racist argument, suggesting that the people of the North will benefit from the jobs created by fueling up on uranium.
Alberta progressives, this is your time to shine.
