This is a bit of an editorial, but it takes potshots at Harper. I, for one, would never do such a thing! For example, a giant party of toadies, meeting once a year at a ski chalet, are much better than a science advisor, simply because there are so many of them! And what's the diff, if Harper doesn't listen to any of them?
And what the hey? Nuclear may be moving ahead, because we are going 100% with AECL. I won't be able to complain that nothing's happening anymore.
