AECL's 'Overpriced' Nuclear Bid Flushes


That's it! A moment of silence for the expiry of the famous 'way too much' bid of $26 billion for another plant the size of Darlington. Let's see, what did a house cost in 1970, when Darlington was an 'outrageous' 8 billion!

Anyway, no new nuclear plant here in my lifetime. The Darlington site will be filled with radioactive heat exchangers, pipes, and fuel tubes, from the rehab! No seismic considerations will go into the new stuff, or the storage of the old stuff. I had my glory days in seismic! We can have Haiti's all over the place, and remain safely smug within our sleepy borders. Yeah! Pass the wine. :)
