Premier Brad Wall Prepared To Lose Hundreds Of Millions Just To Open The Door To Nuclear Reactor In Saskatchewan

“What we found is that if you look at a business case, the revenue you generate just from isotopes alone, you could maybe justify about a third of the cost of a reactor.
Richard Florizone
-Chair of the Uranium Development Partnership
-Co-chair of the Research Reactor Working Group responding to the economic feasibility of an isotope reactor, July 9, 2009

Saskatchewan's right wing Premier is a strong advocate for the construction of a nuclear power reactor in the province. He is so intent on building a reactor that he has stepped forward with a proposal to construct a reactor that will 'only' be used for medical isotopes. Nothing was mentioned of this project in either the province's Budget, Speech from the Throne or legislative debate. Unfortunately for Wall, there is no sound business case for such a project and Saskatchewan taxpayers would be on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars.

At the same time, Saskatchewan's reactor critics are openly stating that the Saskatchewan Party Government proposal for an isotope generating reactor is merely a political Trojan Horse, attempting to initiate reactor construction in the province.

Wall is not making a convincing argument to the people of his province, at least in terms of the costs of his proposed reactor project.
