Dear Prime Minister,
The National Research Universal (NRU) located at the Chalk River Laboratories, is one of the largest and most versatile research reactors in the world. It has been in service since November 3rd, 1957, and continues to play a key role in advancing the quality of life of Canadians and people around the world almost six decades later.
This reactor stands as a shining example of a true Canadian success story, and the foundation in the development of the nuclear industry in this country. It is one of the few research reactors in the world available for commercial use.
On behalf of myself and the over 60,000 Canadians who rely on the science, research and development associated with this unique Canadian institution, I urge you and your Government to commit the financial resources necessary to replace this vital piece of national infrastructure that has served Canadians so well.
