Nukes on

li-gentilly-2.jpgQuebec has just one nuclear reactor -- Gentilly 2. It's on the south shore of the Saint Lawrence near Becancour, about 200 km northeast of Montreal. And a growing number of people feel it's time to retire it from use. If it's to continue to operate, it would cost $2 billion to recommission and would be able to run until 2040. The Quebec Liberal government has said it will spend that money to keep Gentilly 2 going. On Monday, Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois said that if elected, the PQ will decommission it altogether. Gerard Deltell is the leader of third party at the QC National Assembly ADQ.
