BC currently generates 86 of its electricity from hydroelectric power, and the potential exists to generate triple that. The nuclear industry argues that nuclear power is cheaper than coal-fired power or wind power - but an assessment in Ontario, based on the actual performance of reactors and the required return of capital, suggested that the realistic lifetime price of new nuclear power would be 20 centskWh, greater than wind or ted Reading Time: 5 mins.

Canada is a nuclear nation, but the country does not have the ultimate symbol of nuclear power: a weapons program of its own. Since the first atomic weapon was detonated inCanadians have debated not only the role of nuclear power in their uranium-rich land but also their countrys role in a nuclear Nuclear North investigates critical questions in these ongoing debates.
