Ontario to Go All Nuclear?

That's what this article from Reuters Canada seems to be saying:

Ontario, keen to close its remaining coal-fired power plants, said on Friday it has asked four nuclear firms for proposals to replace the Canadian province's aging nuclear facilities with new reactors.

The provincial government has asked AREVA, Atomic Energy of Canada, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, and Westinghouse Electric Co. for bids to replace their current stock. Read the article for more details, but it certainly seems that a golden (uranian?) age is getting underway up north.

Ontario still has some hydro power as well, Niagara Falls being the obvious example, and there is apparently plans for some off-shore wind stations on the Lakes. but all in all it's going to be a nuclear powered Provence by in large.
