A lawsuit is not on the table yet. That from Provincial Energy Minister Jack Keir after word Prince Edward Island is joining this Province in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Atomic Energy of Canada for cost overruns and delays in the refuurbishment of the nuclear reactor at Point Lepreau. Keir tells CHSJ News, he has been in touch with P-E-I and legal action remains an option but they're not at that popint yet.
Keir says his preference is to sit down with Conservative MP Keith Ashfield and member of the federal cabinet and see if something can't get ironed out. The delays have forced the Island's utility to buy power costing two million dollars a month.
