Interest in Nuclear Energy in Saskatchewan

From the CBC:

The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce says there's a renewed interest in the use of nuclear energy in the province.

The chamber sent out a survey asking communities and First Nations if they were receptive to a uranium processing or refining plant being built in the area.

It found overwhelming support for the idea.

"Ninety-five per cent of the respondents said 'yes,'" said Chamber president Ralph Boychuk. "The only five per cent that were negative about it were resort villages, which really have no ability to have that in their jurisdiction.

"So quite convincingly there was a strong appetite for a plant in whatever municipalities responded."
