Pt. Lepreau retubing

Pt. Lepreau in NB is undergoing the same thing that old Pickering A did. Mainly, all the interior pressure tubes will be replaced, and the old tubes shoved in the backyard in questionable casks.

The real question is the condition of the steam generators. Can they really last the next 25 years? Pickering A had to give up on 2 reactors, and Bruce is replacing them.
