36. Who knows the price? - nobody yet
I was getting flyer's on my door step from the nay-saying nuclear pundints (Clean Air Alliance) long before AECL/Candu made their pitch. On the flyer it claimed in bold 'Don't give the nuclear industry a 26 billion cheque". So perhaps that is where Tyler Hamilton got the figure but regardless of what the real bid was/is - the Ontario government - should they continue to waiver on the decision - will have a very large price tag. Much ado has been made with the Federal government selling off assets of ACEL. The uncertainty surrounding that reality, coupled with lobbies on both sides of the nuclear fence, the relatively new green legislation offered incentives for wind, solar and other renewables, the debate will rage on. I do think they'll revisit the nuclear option given that was part of the plan to support the grid while they phase out coal, and build up renewables. Stay tuned.
