Nuclear power costly 

Fortunately, we have plenty of lower cost options to keep the lights on. The cost of new nuclear would be 50 per cent more than the cost of wind power, triple the cost of water power imports from Quebec or natural gas-fired generation, and five times more than what we are paying our manufacturers to increase their energy efficiency.  It's time to put consumers and taxpayers first. No more blank cheques for the nuclear industry.
