Sale of AECL Could Leave Province Footing The Bill On Lepreau

The provincial Liberals are worried about the possible repercussions from the federal government's imminent sale of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.

Energy Critic Brian Kenny says the sale will leave questions on who will be responsible for paying the cost overruns of the Point Lepreau refit.
The province claims the federal government should pay for the billion dollar bill as they are the owners of AECL, who were contracted by the Lord government to do the work.

Kenny adds that the Energy Minister has been quite vague as to how negotiations between the province and AECL are going.
