The Unit 2 nuclear reactor at Bruce Power which has been out of service since 1995, was shut down over the weekend because of a leak as it was being restarted after a refurbishment.  On March 16th, TransCanada announced that Bruce Power had received authorization from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission to power up the unit 2 reactor.

The unit will remain shut down while the leak is investigated and steps are taken to prevent a recurrence. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission says there was no release to the environment due to the leak on Saturday, and no plant worker received any dose of radiation.
