Ha, ha. So much for the effort to get someone who knew what they're doing! I don't think they could've found someone like that, even if they tried, which they probably didn't.
This sets the stage for rapid approval of all the silly plans by the utilities and AECL. Who needs credibility if nobody cares? I don't think it bothers the staff much, since all the people most affected (people I could talk to), left when the first toadie wreaked her destruction.
And I don't think that the big toadie Science Council has met yet. I'm sure they would heartily approve of this!
