Bruce Power Statement on Changes to Nuclear Liability Act

TIVERTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 10, 2013) - Today, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources announced the federal government intends to proceed with changes to modernize the Nuclear Liability Act. For a number of years, Bruce Power has been an active supporter of modernizing the 40-year-old act.

Bruce Power supports the announcement by the federal government to modernize the Nuclear Liability Act and looks forward to seeing legislation introduced to reflect these changes and working with the government to create competition to provide the necessary capacity.

Canada's nuclear industry is a source of safe, affordable and clean electricity for families and businesses. Bruce Power is the largest nuclear facility in Canada and provides nearly a third of Ontario's electricity through one of the country's largest public-private partnerships. More output from Bruce Power nuclear over the last decade has been a large contributor to Ontario's plan to phase out coal-fired generation and will be essential to supporting Canada's greenhouse gas reduction efforts.
