The Canadian government has fired the nuclear safety commissioner for failing to reopen an ancient nuclear reactor that was having problems with its backup safety systems. Whaaaaaaa???
The government’s representatives then have the gall to state that “the government is not satisfied that she demonstrated the leadership expected”.
With all due respect to the thousands of people around the world in need of medical isotopes provided by the plant, leadership is about choosing between the lesser evil. This move is simply Homer Simpsonesque. Doesn’t anyone remember Chernobyl?
