Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump Petition
Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar power generation company, is seeking approval to build a nuclear waste dump (a Deep Geological Repository or DGR)
1 km from the shores of Lake Huron.
The Dump will extend underground to approximately 400 meters below the lake level. Some of this nuclear waste remains toxic and lethal for over 100,000 years.
Approval is anticipated within 4 to 6 months.
This dump puts at risk the fresh water of the GREAT LAKES, relied upon by 40 million people in two countries.
Any risk of buried nuclear waste entering the largest body of fresh water in the world is too great a risk to take, and need not be taken.
We can and must deliver an overwhelming wave of opposition to OPG's plan. Tell Minister Aglukkaq and the Canadian federal government to stand up for the protection of the Great Lakes.
