Exactly this. When I lived my closest to work (5 miles), public transit involved an additional 2 hours of travel time on each end of the day, and removed by ability to work late (a requirement of the job), and had me outside in Midwestern winters for 10-15 minutes at each stop.

And forget biking. The one road that ran where I needed to was narrow and had no separate bike lane - I biked to work three times and nearly died every time. It's not about my biking ability, it's about the stupidity of the average American SUV-driver.

Math is FTA, detailing the costs of the program ...

CANDU runs on unenriched fuel, if you want it to. Or the 'waste' from other reactors. Advanced (meaning Gen 3+) CANDU runs on slightly enriched fuel. If you are starting fresh with no legacy reactors to fuel, there is zero need for a massively expensive and overdone enrichment program. Take that into account along with the history here so far (enrichment levels, posturing, Russia's offers, etc.). To me, anyways, that strongly suggests that there is an ulterior motive to this particular enrichment program.

More just a comment to illustrate that, once they got the locking heavy cockpit doors in place, the rest of the 'preventing a hijacking' problem was mostly taken care of. It is, however, a REALLY good reason to stay buckled in (tight) at all times unless you're up for the bathroom.

Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
