The Ottawa-based Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is investigating allegations, purportedly from an internal group of specialists, that CNSC commissioners are receiving “insufficient information” to make informed safety decisions about Ontario’s nuclear power plants.

In an unsigned letter to CNSC president Michael Binder, copied to the Citizen, the authors say their main concern is that the nuclear watchdog’s commissioners “do not receive sufficient information to make balanced judgments.”
