Unfortunately I know nothing about the acting persons you and others
mentioned. What I extracted from the link you provided is, that the
government authorized Chalk River to run the nuclear reactor for some time
even before the requested upgrade has been done, because the isotopes were
needed desperately and human lives were at risk or even have already been
lost. I applaude your government!

If Mr. Harper was involved in this decision and is a politician I would also
applaude him, because a politician should hire knowing advisors, not people
like wannabe students working for Greenpeace or similar self-serving
organisations, and should follow their advices. 

How many people have died already because of delayed or impossible

Best regards,

Betreff: [ RadSafe ] An article from

Colette Tremblay (colette.tremblay at thought you would be
interested in the following article from, Canada's leading
source for online news: 

"Ottawa thwarts nuclear watchdog" 
A Three-Mile-Island-type of nuclear accident could occur at Canada's Chalk
River reactor unless a backup power supply system, capable of withstanding
natural disasters such as earthquakes, is installed, according to an
assessment by the president of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. 

Note from  Colette Tremblay: I didn't know that Steven Harper was a nuclear
scientist :-)
