Heather Jordan has reported at MLive that the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance is encouraging all citizens and elected officials to submit comments by the Sept. 1st deadline to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, to express opposition to the Ontario Power Generation Deep Geologic Repository proposed at Bruce Nuclear Generating Station on the Lake Huron shore in Kincardine, Ontario.
The Bay Alliance has expressed deep concern about the potential impact of the proposed dump on the life and livelihood of the entire region.
"The Saginaw Bay Watershed is an extraordinarily important asset to the entire Great Lakes Bay Region," Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance President and CEO Matthew Felan said in a statement. "The future vitality of the region's economy and our quality of life is in jeopardy from this irresponsible proposal."
..."We simply cannot put the Saginaw Bay Watershed at risk from any radioactive nuclear waste," Felan's statement continued. "The Great Lakes Bay Region benefits immeasurably from shipping, transportation, tourism, boating, beaches, clean and accessible fresh water. The list is endless."
