However, after a national referendum on the future of nuclear power in 1980, industrial progress in nuclear fuel safety became directly connected with a safe phase out of a 12 reactor programme within 25 years of its completion. The proposed solution is based on strengthening the participation in the whole process of negotiating and selecting the site for the project; especially through the inclusion of veto power according to the Swedish model see Andersson et al. Harmonization of biotechnology policies across the federal, provincial, and territorial governments will ensure consistent policies across all branches in order to circumvent the possibility of one governmental branch refusing to reimburse the very innovations other branches are promoting.
