The Council of Canadians Quill Plains (Wynyard) chapter is speaking against small modular nuclear reactors (SMRs) in Saskatchewan.
CBC reports, "Researchers from the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan are looking into what it would take to build a small modular nuclear reactor in Saskatchewan. ...The project is meant to benefit countries considering adopting nuclear power, and aims to provide a comprehensive approach for adopting nuclear energy and siting nuclear power plants."
