Environmentalist ReThinking Support For Point Lepreau

A long time supporter of the Point Lepreau nuclear generating station as a way to reduce carbon emissions is making an about face.
Environmentalist Gordon Dalzell tells CHSJ News the destruction of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier this year has given him cause for sober second thought about construction standards.
And Dalzell says he's now concerned about the level of radioactive emissions from the nuclear power plant.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is holding a public hearing in the city next month to consider N-B Power's request for a new five year operating licence for the plant.
