Media advisory - Clean, Sustainable Nuclear Power in a Carbon Constrained World



    OTTAWA, Feb. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - The energy paradigm is changing and the
push is on to invest in an aging and inadequate infrastructure to secure
Canada's energy needs for decades ahead. Meanwhile, the pressing realities of
climate change and the need for immediate action has led many, even a growing
number of environmentalists, to rethink the benefits of nuclear energy in a
carbon-challenged world.
    National and international experts will discuss a wide range of issues
from the most recent analysis of energy supply and economics, Canada's
participation in the Global Energy Partnership (GNEP), carbon tax impacts,
Canadian public attitudes on nuclear issues, long-term management of used
nuclear fuel around the world and Ontario and New Brunswick's visions of
nuclear energy in Canada.
    These are among some of the key themes and topics to be discussed at this
year's annual Conference of the Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA),
February 27 - 29 at The Westin Ottawa, 11 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
