Nuclear power isn’t the best alternative

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

The Ontario government is ready to embark on a $26-billion mistake. The plan to have more than 50 per cent of our electricity needs met by nuclear power ignores history. No nuclear project in Ontario has come in on time and on budget, neither have they delivered the output promised.

Costly overruns and repairs have saddled taxpayers with a $20-billion debt which appears on our electricity bill as a debt-reduction charge.

One definition of insanity is to repeat something and expect a different result. Why would it be any different this time around?
