Serby Slams Lingenfelter's Nuclear Plant Proposal

Friday, October 28, 2005 at 16:00

 

 

Saskatchewan Deputy Premier Clay Serby is speaking out about a recent pitch to build a nuclear power plant in Saskatchewan's northwest.

 

This week, former deputy premier Dwayne Lingenfelter let it be known he is starting up a drive to build a plant, so the energy can be sold to nearby Fort McMurray.

 

The former politician says he will discuss the move at length during a Saskatoon business meeting next month.

 

However, Serby maintains there is no appetite in the province right now for the establishment of such a controversial project.

 

He also questions Lingenfelter's motives, and believes Lingenfelter is driven mainly by the potential benefits to his Calgary-based oil firm.

 

Serby also believes Lingenfelter's proposal lacks the necessary political steam to become a reality.

 

However, Serby says he won't be surprised if other energy companies step forward soon and pitch the same idea.
