The Ontario government will spend around $27 billion on nuclear power between 
now and 2025 in a bid to keep the lights on in the province. If history is 
any indicator, the nuke plans will be characterized by inefficiencies, 
unanticipated delays,and massive cost overruns, but will at least ensure the 
certainty that future generations have access to a secure supply of 
radioactive waste.
