Nuclear Power leap criticized Ottawa Ontario Hydro and atomic Energy of Canada not the Feder Al the key Deci Sions that launched Canada into the expensive nuclear Power business ,.says the Senate science policy committee re port. As a result Canada. Jumped into a highly sophisticated and costly technology without the Industrial ability to translate Laboratory applications of nuclear Energy into Power stations. The committee says it meant years of Industry learning As it went along and eventually decl undertook much of the work itself. Canadian investment in nuclear Power is estimated at about billion. Atomic Energy has one Plant at Douglas Point ont., feeding Power into Ontario Hydro which has other units under construction at Pickering near Toronto. While the Senate committee does not say so the key period it describes covered the final years of c. D. Howe the War time and Post War Dynamo of the Federal Cabinet Lipse responsibilities included atomic Energy. At Chalk River ont., in 1963, decl and Ontario Hydro officials met and decided to go ahead with a nuclear Power important decisions such As the Type of nuclear reactor natural uranium fuel heavy water made in the succeeding months by decl. This was partly because Canadian scientists were experienced in this reactor and partly because it was thought too expensive to build facilities for producing an alternative fuel enriched uranium. In retrospect says the com Mittee in its report tabled these considerations May not be As sound As they seemed at the time. It cites arrangements made by other countries to get enriched uranium fuel from the United states and Canada s troubles getting a Domestic Supply of heavy j water. _ the knowhow acquired at Chalk River was greatly it adds. By 1954, it was decided that a demonstration Power reactor would be designed and devel oped by private Industry As preparation for building larger commercial plants. Canadian general electric was picked to do the Job. But the Federal Cabinet in june 1959 decided to authorize construction of a bigger 200 megawatt reactor at Douglas Point. This meant going ahead before the prototype was finished. This Hasty apparently based on Ontario Hydro s need for but design and development were withdrawn from general electric s by now experienced team and Given to decl s nuclear Power Plant division. This other decision was apparently also imposed by on Tario Hydro which did not wish to Deal with a private company that had been granted a monopoly when the time came to build its own the committee says it was wrong to neglect technology and design As was done in the 1950s. It says useful guidance and assistance could have been Given decl by an effective and impartial Central machinery for science and technology which had a Clear View of the objectives and of the strategy to be used.
