Nuclear emergency exercise simulates plane crash into Bruce reactor

It’s all hands on deck at Bruce Power this week, as Ontario’s largest nuclear plant simulates a nuclear catastrophe. Under this scenario, over 40 people are dead after a plane plows into the Bruce B Nuclear Generating Station. Crews are trying to contain any radiation leaks, all the while attempting to get the station up and running again in order to provide power to the rest of Ontario.
