The nuclear industry in Canada is currently pursuing approval of their plan to bury 200,000 cubic meters of radioactive waste below the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, and is studying 21 different communities - 15 of them in the Great Lakes basin - as possible burial locations for all of Canada's high level nuclear fuel waste.
The presentation will include descriptions of the burial schemes, the hazards and risks for the Great Lakes community, and possible transportation risks, and linkages to U.S. nuclear waste issues.
A participatory discussion will follow.
We are all stakeholders in the long-term protection and conservation of these fresh water seas. You are invited to come hear Brennain Lloyd and John Jackson speak on this important issue.
