Canada missing out on nuclear party

Or so say the nukely guys! I have to admit that I'm their side, in the sense that waffling forever isn't a good thing. The problem is that AECL, the regulators, and the nuclear waste political kings, are all in one basket. How do you ever sort out that mess? But really, if we are digging out that uranium and sending it all over the world, we really should have a European-style 'cradle to grave' policy for those who would be kind enough to give back their Canadian nuclear waste. After all, it's chock full of juicy plutonium!

As with all things, there is a rational way to progress, and the political way to a mess (that rhymes!). I always see that we dig our big hole, until we become desperate, which won't be for another 10 years. Of course, intelligent people might realize that 10 years isn't so far away....
