Letter regarding Small Modular Nuclear Reactors in Pinawa, Manitoba

Brian Pallister, Premier of Manitoba expressing their knowledge and concerns about the due diligence that should be required before authorizing, or investing in, any new nuclear reactors in the Province of Manitoba, or in Canada as a whole.
