On April 5th, 2017, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency asked Ontario Power Generation (OPG) to provide additional information regarding their plan to bury nuclear waste in a Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) on the shore of Lake Huron.
The Agency chastised OPG for its superficial exploration of alternative locations and emphasized that indigenous peoples’ perspectives need to be better represented. This is the SIXTH time OPG has been asked to provide more information on the project.
Tomorrow, on May 26th, 2017, OPG will respond to the Agency's April 5th request for more information.
Listen to our Vice President, Ellen Dailey, discuss the risks of building a nuclear waste dump near the lake and why we should fight to protect it.
