History[ edit ] THowever, in latejust as ProdiGene was ramping up production of trypsin for commercial launch  it was discovered that volunteer plants left over from the prior harvest of one of their GM corn products were harvested with the conventional soybean crop later planted in that field. This raised a furor and set the pharming field back, dramatically. A compromise was reached, but Ventria withdrew its permit to plant in Missouri due to unrelated circumstances.
Canadian Nuclear Association, Author's assessment, based on alternative employment. The manufacturing sector 80 per cent Ontario based is the biggest question mark. However, most CANDU suppliers -- makers of pumps, valves, seals, instruments, and even heavy components like calandrias, for example -- are already highly diversified.
Some firms have as little as 10 per cent of their business in the nuclear field [ VI ] They could exit from the nuclear industry without major repercussions, then re-enter ten years later to supply the same CANDU components if required.
A few companies will no doubt require special assistance to make the adjustment, which would eventually be necessitated by a de facto moratorium in any event.
It is better to face the problem squarely now than to drift toward a much more chaotic collapse later. For example, those firms now manufacturing CANDU fueling machines could produce robotic decommissioning equipment instead.
Once established, Canadian expertise in dealing with outstanding problems of reactor safety, waste disposal and decommissioning may be exportable at a profit to other countries facing similar problems.
In addition, technological spin-offs e. From many different perspectives, the non-expansion option is an attractive one. Indeed, rationalization of the nuclear industry is long overdue. This policy "could generate attractive profits and, in addition, provide badly needed business for the Canadian nuclear industry.
Nevertheless, the United Steelworkers of America -- representing most of the uranium miners in Canada -- issued the following conference statement inshortly after the electricity export scheme was first expounded by the nuclear lobby: The pursuit of nuclear power has already cost an unacceptable price in terms of health and lives of our uranium miners.
Ontario's over-expansion of nuclear generating capacity is a senseless waste of taxpayers' dollars. A bad situation should not be made worse. Therefore, the proposal of increased reactor construction for the purpose of energy exports to the United States should be completely rejected.
All the economic and environmental burdens would be borne by Canadians, and the benefits would be few. Americans would get all of the power and most of the jobs.
The Canadian nuclear industry would last for a few more years in its present form, living on borrowed time. Is such an arrangement good business? Are the benefits so great as to justify the borrowing of tens of billions of dollars, using the public purse as collateral, but without involving the public in the decision-making process?
These questions are dramatically highlighted by the situation in New Brunswick. The Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station recently completed is totally surplus to the province's present electrical needs.
There has never been a thorough environmental assessment for the Point Lepreau reactor, despite the fact that it will be the first CANDU to be cooled with salt water, the first to depend upon a newly designed high-pressure emergency core cooling system, the first to be built within five kilometres of a major geological fault, and the first of its size to operate without a vacuum building.
Construction irregularities and design flaws have been identified but only superficially investigated. Power has told the NEB that the environmental impact of electricity exports from Point Lepreau will be zero, since the plant will be operated at full power with or without exports.
If the NEB accepts this argument, no environmental study will be required before exports are authorized.Prosecution. If you seek assistance from the police, your abuser may be arrested for a number of crimes.
Domestic battery (which involves most acts of physical abuse) or domestic assault (which refers to threatening to harm) are the most common. If the abuser was arrested on the criminal charges and bonds out, a condition of bond is that the abuser stays away from you for 72 hours. Disclaimer: This work has been submitted by a student.
