Fallout from isotope crisis hits top regulator
Linda Keen has been sacked as president of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), as the row over the NRU shutdown intensifies.
On 15 January the Canadian government removed Keen as president, citing a serious erosion of faith in her leadership. The government said Keen would remain as a full-time member of the CNSC. The move comes after a public exchange of critical letters between Keen and natural resources minister Gary Lunn.
