The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is denying it heard about a radioactive leak at the Chalk River nuclear facility days after it happened. Instead the organization is saying it heard about the incident “within hours” of it happening.

Atomic Energy of Canada Limited has confirmed a radioactive leak occurred at the Chalk River, Ont. plant in early December.

The details were included in a detailed report from AECL that was provided to CTV.ca.
