I feel I have to preface this by saying this isn’t an anti-Sask Party post, or a pro-Green Party, or pro-NDP post. My mission is to inform my neighbours as to the swindle on their pocketbooks underway by the nuclear power industry. If you don’t want your SaskPower bill to more than double, you’d be wise to read on, and get informed.
The Perrins Report is in, and the Sask Party is confused. 84% is a butt kicking. The people have spoken — nuclear power is an albatross that the people of Saskatchewan don’t want around our necks. Ontario ditched plans to expand with plants like those pitched for the prairies, and they have about 13 times as many taxpayers as Saskatchewan has.
“Nearly 500 responses dealt primarily with the need to move to alternative energies (see Figure 31). An overwhelming majority (98%, n=469) of these responses indicated that Saskatchewan should have a greater focus on alternative energies. A very small percentage of responses focused on the need to have a lesser focus on alternative energies (1%, n=6) or indicated that Saskatchewan should maintain its current focus (1%, n=5).
Of those who wanted a greater focus on alternative energies,
environmental/sustainability reasons were the most commonly identified. “
Here’s one such alternative to provide us a residential base load using renewable energy. And hundreds of these plants,with no toxic waste, would cost less than 2 nuclear reactors.
What did learning ever do for us?

“All you leftwing nuts have to learn that the way to go isn’t to learn about the good and bad about something before making an informed decision — it’s to act fast and deal with the fall out later!!! Like the old saying, kill em’ all and let god sort em’ out!”
Rawlco, you’ll publish “kill em'[leftwing nuts] all “, but pull a comment from me about George Bush being a war criminal? Nice bias.
UPDATE: They didn’t publish my reply, and removed the anonymous comment about killing “leftwing nuts”. I just wanted them to publish both comments, and my other one about Bush on that other article. —
But remember, there are a lot of moderate people at Rawlco, so it’s okay they are a greed-biased business that will let the ultra-right wing spout off to make people angry.
