Re: “Questions still to be asked about nuclear power, says environmental advocate,” (The Hill Times, Aug. 23, p. 8). By listing questions that he still has, and the reasons why he still has them, John Bennett clearly demonstrates our point that much anti-nuclear sentiment comes from the misinformation that has been circulating. There is almost nothing that Bennett bases his questions on that he gets right, but the most obvious errors are: A deep geologic repository is not the only solution for the management of used fuel. The industry can continue doing what it does today, which in the entire history of the industry on this continent with its 100-plus nuclear plants, has never given rise to any harm to a human or the environment. Moreover, there is no question about who will pay. The users of the electricity are paying. Taxpayers have not spent $1-billion on small modular reactors to achieve “no watts being produced.” The government has committed to loan $1-billion to a project that will produce 300MWe, and will demonstrate a technology that will give smaller jurisdictions access to emissions-free energy. This is an essential and challenging step on the journey to net zero. The industry is not regulated by insiders—the members of the commission are all independents. It is the staff who provide the advice to the commission that are often drawn from the industry. This is a good thing because it means they understand the technologies they are advising on. Bennett’s questions should not give us pause when it comes to deploying nuclear power; they are very easily answered by relying on facts instead of rumours.
