Yep, still using Unat for most fuel.  The Bruce plants are now using a new, slightly enriched, fuel bundle to enhance control due to the positive void coefficient that the CANDU design has.  The new generation of CANDU plants will actually us a light water HT system, D2O Moderator system, and slightly enriched fuel to enhance performance and provide better safety margins.  Will also have the great byproduct of reducing our H3 exposure as well :)

But I never realized that The Queen of England is also the Queen of Canada, as well as 15 other countries.

She even has a representative in Canadian government, the Governor General, who is the personal represetative of the Queen.  Here is a better explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Governor_General_of_Canada
