The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) and SPEA have published a joint statement regarding the future of AECL. From the OSPE Newsletter:

Nuclear Update: Advocacy on AECL has Effect

With the help of the Political Action Network (PAN), OSPE's concerns over the future of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) are being heard and understood at Queen's Park. During question period on May 20th, the Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Brad Duguid, called on Ottawa to protect Canada's nuclear industry, which employs some 70,000 workers. Throughout March and April, PAN volunteers met with MPPs to draw attention to the importance of Canada's nuclear sector and to alert them of the challenges and opportunities that the restructuring of AECL presents to Canada's skilled nuclear workforce. A joint statement with the Society of Professional Engineers and Associates (SPEA) is now posted to the OSPE website.
