Cautious optimism from Premier Graham concerning a proposal to build a second reactor at Point Lepreau.
Energy Minister Jack Keir met with officials from Areva to explore the possibilities last week and Graham tells CHSJ News, it's vital the private sector take on the risk and not the rate-payer.
Premier Graham says the next step in the process now is to see if a letter of intent can be signed.

Quispamsis' resident NHL player Randy Jones will have his hand prints placed among other members of the community beside the sidewalk leading up to the Q-Plex.
Jones was in town last week for his Celebrity Golf tournament and was the first person to have his hands cast for the towns "Lasting Impressions" campaign and got a tour of the construction site and can't wait to see the finished product.
Jones says it will be neat to come back down the road and see his hand prints on the property with everyone else's.
