Atomic Energy to be privatized?

Review of AECL is expected to be finished by the end of the year.

Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunnby cbcnews.ca

More questions and not a lot of answers today about the future of Atomic Energy of Canada.

They came at the House of Commons standing committee looking at budget spending at the Department of Natural Resources.

Minister Gary Lunn was on the hot seat answering questions about Atomic Energy's future. His government has pledged to spend $300 million this year and next to help refurbish the aging nuclear site in Chalk River, Ontario and to help AECL finish the design of its newest ACR 1000 reactor.

Atomic Energy is in the midst of a crucial bid against three other companies to build Ontario's new nuclear reactors. . .
