Dec. 15/13: ** Webcast & transcripts at this spot on CNSC Web site.
A lot of media attention is being paid to this issue.
Just providing links to a summary of news items I’ve seen (thanks to friends! ) since the DGR hearing began on September 16th. 2 previous posts (Courage is Contagious! & DGR: Kincardine-area Resident Speaks Out) have been about the DGR Hearing currently taking place in beautiful Kincardine, Ontario, on the shores of Lake Huron.
(It’s a plan to dump nuclear waste within a kilometre of Lake Huron. For many, it’s not the DGR but the DUD – Deep Underground Dump. Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians has said “…this is an act of insanity, this would be a crime against future generations, this is a crime against nature.” I think Ms. Barlow has put this rather well.)
OK. The news items. Most recent is at the top (I am adding them in as I hear of them).
& please note: At this link on the Save Our Saugeen Shores site there is also a media summary. Not sure if our lists are the same, & no time to pore over both – best you check both to be sure you see all there is! (This can all be rather confusing: the nuke boyz are looking for 2 nuke dump sites, 1 for so-called “low” & “intermediate-level waste,” one for used fuel or “high” level waste. This posting & my others on this blog are about the so-called “low” & “intermediate” level DGR planned for beside Lake Huron, near Kincardine. Check out Know Nuclear Waste for tons more great info about the waste search/scene.
