Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Nuclear industry at cross-roads Wednesday, October 3, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-37 China 9s top man Mao Tse-tung, still the country's leader as the People's Republic of China celebrates its 24th anniversary as a Communist state is shown last month at the party's 10th National Congress in Peking. This photo from the Hsinhua News Agency, was received in New York. By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA In about a month, the federal govern- ment will have to decide whether in public funds should be used to build a much-needed heavy water plant and, if so, where the plant should be located. At the time of the decision, Canada's young and increas- ingly-successful nuclear in- dustry will arrive at one of its most important turning points in its controversy-filled 20- year history. II Ottawa decides in favor of building the country's fourth heavy water plant, as it now seems inevitable, then the fed- eral government will have once again done what it so fervently wants private in- dustry to do. Canada's nuclear industry will actually become more government controlled rather than more private industry- oriented as the 20-year-old game plan says it should be. II Ottawa decides against building the critical heavy wa- ter plant, well then federal nu- clear officials say bluntly that Canada's nuclear industry will die. UNQUE SYSTEM The unique Canadian nuclear power system, called CANDU. uses natural uranium as fuel and deuterium oxide, heavy wa- ter, as the moderator of the nuclear reaction and, in most models, also as the coolant. The more widely-used American reactors use regular light water and highly-enriched uranium fuel. II Ottawa, the provinces or private in- build about tour very large heavy water plants during the next 10 years. Canada won't have enough heavy water to run the expected increasing number of domestic and. it is hoped, foreign CANDU nuclear in- stallations. Federal nuclear officials tear that the lack of heavy water in the 1980s could force domestic customers to turn elsewhere, to the U.S. for nuclear reactors.And 20 years ol nuclear development will be lost. B.C. IN LINE Federal officials won't say what sites are being con- sidered or what locations are favored. But sources do reveal the following: and Nova Scotia, already with heavy water plants, aren't in the running. Prince Edward Island and New- foundland, relatively isolated from the mainland as they are. are also not being con- sidered. seems to be the favorite for a number of reasons. It plans to have or already has the necessary large amounts of power needed; and it is expected to be the next growth area for nuclear energy, once the James Bay region is devel- oped. Gaspe. Lac St. Jean and Montmagny have indicated in- terest. heavy water plant could be built on top or near coal fields such as in B.C. The coal would be used as a cheap and reliable source of elec- tricity and steam for the plant! British Columbia is believed to be a leading contender in this area. Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories has also indicated an official interest in the heavy water plant. What's needed is a cheap and reliable supply of electricity and steam; a good supply of pure water, preferably high in deuterium lor making deuterium oxide, heavy water; and a low pop- ulation density, in part' as a result of the damgers aossicated with hydrogen sul- phide emissions from the plant. U.S. HOUSING SLUMP NEW YORK (AP) First National City Bank says in its monthly economic letter there is a possibility of "a recurrence of the sharp hous- ing slumps of 1966 and 1969." Main reason for the decline is the sharp drop in the availability of mortgages. Intervention by the govern- ment and by quasi-public agencies "are not likely to prevent a major recession in homebuilding." Reg. Reg.
