As reported at the Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump website, on April 17th, Beverly Fernandez was interviewed by Agenda producer Hilary Clark about "Another Look at the Deep Geologic Repository Plan." Fernandez is a spokesperson for Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump's efforts in opposition to Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) proposal to bury so-called "low" and intermediate level radioactive wastes less than a mile from the Great Lakes -- drinking water supply for 40 million people in 8 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces.
The Agenda web link above also links to another of its reports from back in the autumn of 2013, after the Canadian federal Joint Review Panel wrapped up their first hearings on the DGR proposal. The Agenda hosted a discussion between Larry Kraemer, Mayor of Kincardine and strong advocate for the project, and Brennain Lloyd of Northwatch, an opponent of the proposal. Kraemer claims it was he who approached OPG with the initial idea for the DGR, in 2001. Kincardine and other area municipalities, largely populated by Bruce Nuclear workers, have been and will continue to recieve a million dollars per year from OPG for their support of the DGR proposal.
