moved for leave to introduce Bill C-449, an act to amend the Nuclear Energy Act and the Nuclear Safety and Control Act.
Mr. Speaker, this is a fairly simple bill. It simply splits responsibility for Atomic Energy Canada Limited and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission into the responsibility of two ministers instead of one, because in my opinion there is clearly a conflict of interest to be both the marketer and the public safety supervisor of the nuclear industry. I am proposing to split that responsibility in two.
