Canada watchdog warns of faulty nuclear monitoring

Canadian regulators are failing to monitor the country’s nuclear power plants properly and such safety lapses are unacceptable, an official said Tuesday. Canada has four nuclear plants with a total of 19 reactors in Ontario and New Brunswick provinces. Regulators have carried out inadequate and irregular inspections, and these also failed to take into account risks when deciding which plants to probe, Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development Julie Gelfand said.
