Canada: Pressure tubes at two nuclear reactors deteriorated far too quickly

Early in the summer of 2021, Canada’s nuclear safety regulator received
alarming news. Inspections had revealed that two pressure tubes from
different reactors at Canada’s largest nuclear power plant, the Bruce
Nuclear Generating Station, had deteriorated far more quickly than

terms of its operating licence. The revelation put the Canadian Nuclear
Safety Commission in a tight spot. How were its leaders to respond?
