AECL Throws Out Maple

This is the most significant news in a while. AECL is giving up on the Maple, the hoped-for replacement of the clapped-out NRU. Now the NRU will just have to go on, just like the 50's cars in Cuba!

But don't worry, the Maple lives on in the new design for the ACR1000! Funny things are going to happen whenever you surround the fuel bundles with light water.

I now take this opportunity to admit that I was completely wrong! I though for sure the 'New CNSC' would approve the Maple reactors.
