Nuclear reactor bid details revealed

OTTAWA, ONTARIO - Documents left at a CTV News office by a then-aide to federal Natural Resources Minister Lisa Raitt have exposed insider details of the bidding to build two new nuclear reactors in Ontario.

CTV says the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. documents suggest the federally owned firm is concerned about going over budget if it's selected. Also bidding are Areva Group of France and U.

S.-based Westinghouse Electric Co.

The documents say there's a risk the firm could encounter large cost overruns, which could be passed on to taxpayers, and conditions imposed by Ottawa resulted in AECL submitting a high bid.
