The value of the scrap was likely quite high. And it likely paid for itself many times over during its years of use.

Also there was the politics involved with the provincial government promising plant closures.

The politics were a huge factor in this.

Just like they're a huge factor in the eventual closure of Nanticoke and Lambton (no matter how much they push it back, it will eventually happen).
