Using the Homer Simpson method of nuclear safety may speed up the approval process, however, it leaves Saskatchewan residents worried about where we are heading with nuclear power generation.
Premier Wall and his government better remember that they have NO mandate to construct a reactor or to store nuclear waste from other jurisdictions. Any moves that the provincial government makes in this direction must be fully discussed and debated by the people of Saskatchewan.
