Growing public concern about UDP one-sidedness left the Sask Party government with no political alternative but to undertake a “public consultation process”, which Perrins led from April to July.

The Ontario nuclear corporation Bruce Power (BP) is running a high-profile PR campaign along the North Saskatchewan River from Lloydminster to North Battleford to Prince Albert.
Prince Albert wants "feedback from the community" on Bruce Power building nuclear plants "within a 50 km radius" of the city.
Enterprise and Innovation Minister Lyle Stewart is telling citizens that renewable energy like "Wind and solar have their place, but because they are intermittent and unpredictable, they simply can not replace big base load plants such as coal, nuclear and hydroelectric." Stewart has been listening to Bruce Power, the Ontario firm that wants to build nuclear power plants on the North Saskatchewan.
