China Wants Nuclear Reactors, and Lots of Them: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-02-21/china-wants-nuclear-reactors-and-lots-of-them
"Soon after the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear meltdown in March 2011,
Germany announced it would decommission all its nuclear plants.
Switzerland and Italy rejected proposals to build more reactors. Japan
shut down its reactors and has yet to restart them. China, on the other
hand, plowed ahead with existing projects, even though it suspended new
approvals so it could perform more safety checks. Last November, the
government lifted the moratorium and approved four projects. The number
of reactors being built is now 29—the most of any country, and 40
percent of the world’s total. “China is now one of the most important
countries, if not the most important country, in the global nuclear
industry,” says Antony Froggatt, a senior research fellow at Chatham
House, a British think tank."

a grassroots, nonpartisan movement of ordinary Canadians
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.
