Bruce Power Drops a Load

Thunk! Did you feel it? Did it register on all the seismometers?

Bruce Power submits a 4000 page report, which is quite a load. This is all on Bruce C, and they don't find any environmental effect. Who's going to read all this? I remember our old adage with the big company: If you have to submit, make it heavy!

Why do all this for a single twin plant? You know they want two twins. They've got the transmission capacity now. I just can't see that a single twin is worth it. Perhaps they think that if they get approval for one, then another one is easy. The old 'thin edge of the wedge' trick.

ps. My mistake, I find that they have now included the possibility of 4 reactors.
