(Energy Minister Jack Keir)
Energy Minister Jack Keir says there's no reason to wait to sign a letter of intent with the French Company Areva.
Keir was in Florida last week to discuss the possibility of a second nuclear reactor at Point Lepreau. He says there are all kinds of reasons why Areva would want to invest in New Brunswick.
He says Areva sees that New Brunswick is a bilingual province and there's opportunities here for them to do research and development at both UNB and UDM.
Keir says if a letter of intent is signed the next step will be to build a business case that works for everybody.
