Radioactive waste dump upstream
Further to your excellent editorial(s) on the process of pushing through a very dangerous radioactive waste dump, those of us in close proximity to a potentially leaky nuclear dump within a km of the Ottawa River have every reason to be concerned and are becoming more and more so by the day. Their rejection of your proposal of an Ottawa site is, as you say, impossible to fathom -- but they are also only hours away from nuclear disaster should there be a major mishap at any Chalk River radioactive facility. The Ottawa River has always been a highway for travel and commerce and will work just as well to deliver radioactive waste downstream, our toxics as well as that imported from other jurisdictions. Make your friends and relatives downstream aware and get the dump moved away from the river before it is built.
