Video Launch: Great Lakes Threatened With Radioactive Waste - SOS Great Lakes

Right now, there is a plan to bury nuclear waste on the shore of Lake Huron. A plan that could result in the pollution of the largest basin in the world for 100, 000 years, the Great Lakes Basin.

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is a Canadian power company that plans to bury up to 400, 000 cubic metres of radioactive nuclear waste less than 1 km from Lake Huron. This means building a nuclear waste dump on the shore of the Great Lakes, a source of drinking water for 40 million people in Canada and the United States. 

We are SOS Great Lakes. We are challenging OPG’s dump. 

We are among more than 100 organizations, 100 communities and 150 000 people in Canada and the U.S. who want Catherine McKenna, the Canadian Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, to say NO to the dump. 

We believe that if the 40 million people who rely on the Great Lakes for drinking water knew about this highly risky and needless threat to the Great Lakes, they would never allow it to happen.

We can’t reach those people by ourselves. Join us. Share this story. 

Your lakes, your choice.
