Ottawa River nuclear waste dump - hearings
On April 1 the "http://concernedcitizens.net/2022/04/05/algonquins-of-barriere-lake-request-adjournment-of-hearings-for-the-chalk-river-mound-nsdf Algonquins of Barriere Lake joined the Kebaowek Algonquins and numerous elected officials and civil society groups in HYPERLINK "http://concernedcitizens.net/2022/02/15/statement-on-suspension-of-licensing-hearings-for-a-radioactive-waste-dump-beside-the-ottawa-river/" calling for a halt to the licensing hearings for the giant Chalk River/Ottawa River nuclear waste dump.
Unfortunately, the requests are falling on deaf ears as Canada has an HYPERLINK "http://concernedcitizens.net/2021/03/12/who-will-fix-canadas-nuclear-governance-gaps-citizens-groups-hill-times/" inadequate nuclear governance system that leaves the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission free to steamroll ahead with licensing in defiance of common sense and the wishes of many Canadians and Indigenous communities.
Please consider adding your voice to the many who are calling for a halt to the licensing of the giant radioactive garbage dump, called NSDF by the proponent. You can "intervene" in the CNSC hearings that start on May 31 either by sending written comments or by making an oral presentation to the panel of the commission. It's a simple process: 1. Send an email to HYPERLINK "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" email@example.com ; 2. Use the subject line: May 31 Public Commission Hearing – Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Near Surface Disposal Facility ; 3. Include your name, address and phone number. Please cc your Member of Parliament on your request to intervene.
