An expert "objective" panel that included proponents of nuclear energy who submitted a report that predictably omitted many of the industry's drawbacks. The group refused to hear from renowned expert on the health impacts of nuclear radiation, Dr. Helen Caldicott, because she's biased.

Its no surprise to me Harper has to do every thing in his traitorous power to appease those in the CFR and Trilateral Commission . The ones who got him elected but now realize he can`t carry their message to the public and gain a majority in the next election. So we are going to see a big Push for Liberal Mike and he will get the backing of those named above .
We in Canada need to wake up and elect a power up here that will not be represented by the criminal forces of the ruling elite How they would just sh*t if some one other than those fools they back got in and it will happen sooner or later . Harper is just trying to protect his a*s and secure a place for him and his family in the underground tombs.

I always knew that Harper was Bush-lite, though my ignorance on Canadian politics is obviously showing.
