MPs Tours Bruce Power

Tiverton | by Travis Jackson  

Isotope milestone marked

The Honourable Lisa Raitt, MP for Milton, and Huron Bruce MP Ben Lobb toured the Bruce Power site recently.

Raitt previously served as Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, Minister of Labour, and Minister of Transport.

Lobb says she had always wanted to tour the facility but never had the chance to do so. 

He says that she was very impressed by the facility.

Lobb says that he tries to bring as many MP's through the site as possible so that they can see ''what a world class facility Bruce Power is''.

The tour provided an opportunity to mark an important isotope milestone, as Bruce B entered its planned maintenance inspection program, which included the installation of High Specific Cobalt rods into Unit 8. 

All four Bruce B units are now producing medical grade Cobalt-60 used to treat brain tumours.
