ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Fukushima, Japan on the nuclear power industries in Canada. It notes that Canada Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) requires all the Class 1 nuclear facilities, uranium mines, and mills in the country to review safety plans for multiple event scenarios. It mentions that even if the Fukushima crisis may not vary the immediate plans of Canada for nuclear, still it has generated debates concerning managing liability.
