The Minister and departmental staff provided background about Fed Dev funding programs that may be of interest to APBOT members and stressed the need to nurture a culture of innovation in Ontario in order to stay globally competitive.

At the meeting, U of T Professor Emeritus Peter Ottensmeyer also presented his proposed plan to re-use nuclear fuel waste with fast-neutron reactors. According to Ottensmeyer, this would eliminate the need to bury the waste and generate electricity.
