** Additions to this are being made often! (scroll down below the ***** to see most recent additions.)
A lot of media attention is being paid to this hearing.
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).

To find all other Hearing Documents (quite a lot here) including daily agendas, transcripts of past hearing sessions & other documents generated by the Hearings, go to the Hearing Documents page.
The old link that still takes you to transcripts, agendas & webcasts (all 3) seems now only to be accessible through the front page of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (English version) & click on the blue-green icon at the right-hand top of the page that says: “Deep Geologic Repository Hearings.” The only reason you need to go there, via this roundabout path, is if you want to watch archived hearings or want other information on the main CNSC page besides these hearings. Otherwise skip it! Too many Web pages to click through!
** many thanks to the friend who sent me this useful hearing-related information!!
