Seems like one day cannot go by without us getting mixed signals about the Postal Unionists approach to Canada as a nation. Whereas it seems like only yesterday that it was let my people be when Lower Canada or Westbertia is in question, today it seems that inter-meddling with the affairs of a province is fine with them:
A spokesman for Ontario Energy Minister Dwight Duncan said that the provincial government has not yet decided whether Crown-owned Atomic Energy of Canada or a global company will be awarded the contract to build the province's first new reactors in more than two decades. "Our preference is to use Canadian technology, but ultimately our first priority is to Canadian taxpayers to ensure we get the best deal possible," Steve Irwin said.Hmmm...while he was Christmas shopping no less! Ontarianada will be well advised to remember that doing one thing at a time is a far better means to achieve good policy and a productive society.
Mr. Irwin was responding to Federal Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn, who weighed in on the matter by saying it is "imperative" that the contract go to AECL. Mr. Lunn contacted The Globe and Mail last Friday while he was Christmas shopping in Vancouver to make the point that the federal government is not technology neutral on the Canadian-made Candu reactor.
