Reckless misinformation that results when the PMO relies on creative columnists like Terry Corcoran for their “facts”

I guess this is in inevitable when you have kids in charge of the CONs communications:

AECL a $30B `sinkhole,' Harper spokesman says

June 12, 2009

OTTAWA–Prime Minister Stephen Harper's chief spokesman, Kory Teneycke says Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., is a "dysfunctional," $30 billion "sinkhole" that will not get any more funding for a new research reactor.

Teneycke later backed away from his earlier comments, saying he "spoke in haste and in error" and should've limited remarks to the MAPLES and not AECL as a whole.

Gee! I wonder where Kory boy got that incorrect information from?

The barriers to Isotopia

Money has never solved AECL's problems, and never will. The present value of all federal cash thrown at AECL over the decades exceeds $30-billion.

Looks like another Avro Arrow in the making. No high tech nuke shit for us Canadians eh! Why? Because we can't handle it.

Avro Arrow - EXACTLY!
Selling us out - AS ALWAYS!

Use the Maple OR start funding PET scans.

We'll see how compliant governments are in paying the bills when people, out of necessity, have to travel elsewhere, out of country, to obtain services that have always been available, up to now.

I want America and France to decide Canada's energy future. Vote Stephen "I'm an economist" Harper.
