The article offers information on Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. (AECL) which was given a license by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to operate the National Research Universal (NRU) nuclear reactor in Ontario until October 31, 2011. CNSC president Michael Binder says that AECL must repair the corroded parts of the reactor and develop strategies to prevent further corrosion before they can reactivate the facility. Furthermore, the AECL operations will be closely monitored by the CNSC.
