I’m not anti-nuke, but (a) nuke plants are potential targets for terrorists(who will eventually discover that Canada also exists and is enough like America that they should hate it too), (b) Three Mile Island and Chernobyl happened and (c) sooner or later, you have to do something with the spent nuclear fuel, and that’s a bugger.

I think that steps 1 and 2 should be to reduce energy consumption and then to maximize the use of safer technologies like geothermal and wind power.
