Chamber seeking nuclear science centre: http://www.thedailyobserver.ca/2012/12/19/chamber-seeking-nuclear-science-centre
"The Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce is proposing the
establishment of a centre to promote the area’s tourism while
celebrating its rich science and technology heritage. The chamber
hopes the Canadian Nuclear Science and Technology Centre will not only
draw visitors, but sell the benefits of doing business in this region.
While the business plan for the 3,500-square foot centre, to be located
along the Highway 17 corridor but in close proximity to Atomic Energy
of Canada Limited at Chalk River, are in their infancy so far all
stakeholders involved support the concept. That partnership with the
chamber includes AECL and the municipalities of Deep River, Laurentian
Hills and Head, Clara and Maria. “There has certainly been some
significant interest and they have asked us to continue our
investigation into their particular opportunity,” past-president Gary
Melnyk recently told the organization’s annual general meeting. The
chamber will manage and staff the centre as a year-round tourist
information centre. It will promote attractions and activities as well
as economic development initiatives aimed at aiding businesses in the
area. It will also provide a local Chamber of Commerce point of contact
for anyone inquiring about economic development statistics and data."

that emerged in response to the lack of commitment by federal government(s) to build a new research reactor in Canada for nearly 2 decades.
