The "What Do I Know Grit"
It's too bad Chretien and Martin did no planning to deal with this problem. They ignored it. In fact they acted recklessly with Canadian's safety
And too bad we never stopped the Germans at the Maginot Line. Strange you leave Mulroney out of the equation.
I'm surprised that they don't blame Linda...
It is, truly, a mess. We've been around the block on this before James, and I would agree that there is no government in the last 20 years with clean hands at Chalk River.. is it a commentary on heavily government subsidized private enterprise? Is it a commentary on business being judged "too important" to apply sensible rules to?Chalk River is a mess and the problem is unlikely to be fully addresed without a massive amount of public money being used to effectively reconstruct it. The question, however, why should the tax payers put money into a busines trading on the TSE?Personally - I think the government is close to now doing the right thing - which is, more or less, nothing other than finally making demands that operations not resume until adherence to proper safety standards can be met. It may leave the world in a bad situation relativet to isotope production - but unless the public has the stomach to effectively buy it out completely - which I don't think is the case - there seems to be no better or more prudent solution.And crying over spilled milk, or a breached "Maginot Line" is no solution at all.
