There is diminishing scope for additional hydro-electric capacity in Canada, and there will be growing pressure to limit greenhouse gas production and release from the use of fossil fuels. This may impose significant constraints on additional fossil-fuel based capacity in North America. In these circumstances, it seems to me that whatever scenarios are considered as the NWMO moves forward, it should take into account the possibility that during the coming decades there may be significant new nuclear fuel based generating capacity.
