Gus Goes Nuclear

The history of Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station and the origins of nuclear power.






What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about my topic is that the only nuclear power plant in Canada, outside of Ontario, is less than an hour's drive from my house.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that nuclear power can be dangerous, but if it is contained, it can be good. Nuclear power can be good for the environment because it does not create carbon emissions.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Compared to when nuclear power was first discovered, things are a lot safer today.
