Beyond Nuclear takes fight against Canada's Great Lakes radioactive waste dump to the Michigan/Ontario border!
On June 16th, Beyond Nuclear's radioactive waste watchdog, Kevin Kamps, presented a PowerPoint entitled Help Stop a Nuclear Waste Dump on the Shore of Lake Huron! What YOU Can Do! at the Donald Dodge Auditorium in Port Huron, Michigan's St. Clair County Administration Building.
See an action alert on what you can do to stop the DGR ("Deep Geologic Repository"), including Stop the Great Lake Nuclear Dump's petition, municipal resolutions, congressional resolutions, submitting unconditional opposition to the latest public comment docket, etc.
Kevin then crossed the Blue Water Bridge, and St. Clair River, into Sarnia, Ontario for an interview with Tyler Kula at The Observer. (See photo, left.)
The "Paul Miller Morning Show" on AM 1380/WPHM radio in Sarnia also interviewed Kevin. You can listen to the audio recording online (scroll down about five or six speakers from the morning show broadcast on June 16th to "Kevin Kamps - Speaker from Beyond Nuclear' on the proposed nuclear waste depository near Lake Huron in Ontario."
Beyond Nuclear's presence on the U.S.-Canada border, directly downstream from Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) proposed radioactive waste dump on the Lake Huron shore in Kincardine, Ontario at the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, came at the very same time as the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative annual meeting, held this year in Sarnia. The association of Great Lakes mayors recently spoke out against OPG's Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) proposal. As reported by The Observer, the Cities Initiative gathering is focused on threats to the drinking water supply for 40 million people in eight U.S. states, two Canadian provinces, and a large number of Native American First Nations.
