ReWind.It, over at Bread’n’Roses, POGGE and the good Dr. Dawg have pretty much covered the new piece in the ongoing saga of the AECL’s Chalk River nuclear reactor. And, though I congratulate Ms Keen on her willingness to Stand Up for Canada and speak out regarding unfair treatment from Minister Lunn in her role as President of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, I cannot let it go unnoticed that Canada’s nuclear regulator has lacked perfection in its role of protecting the safety of Canadians from the nuclear fuel cycle.
I cannot help but wonder if, as with every single thing the Harper regime has done, that this is also a calculated response to their bungling of the Chalk River fiasco. What makes me think this is this statement by Keen:
I would therefore ask you to carefully consider the significant chilling effect your recent actions could have on the practices and decisions of other tribunals who are responsible for important work on behalf of Canadians.
ETA: Impolitical’s contribution. And to fix the link to POGGE.
