Radioactive spill at N.B. nuclear plant prompts calls for more details


  • Radioactive spill at N.B. nuclear plant prompts calls for more details

    A conservation group says there are too many unanswered questions about a spill of radioactive water at Atlantic Canada’s only nuclear power plant.

    David Coon, policy director at the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, said on Wednesday that he wants more information about Tuesday’s spill at the Point Lepreau nuclear facility.

    “They need to release the actual information on the radiation levels and exposures that might have resulted in this case,” Mr. Coon said.

    “Simply giving us the volume of the spill doesn’t tell us anything.”

    webmasters comment:

    Mr. Coon is right on the spot. The nuclear power industry in general doesn't seem obliged to report what emissions and how much were released. In reality they try their best to cover up every leak possible.

    On the side note, this is yet another NPP that they want to extend by another 25-30 years.

    Fukushima blew up exactly the same month its projected lifespan ran out.
