Toronto — 7 February 2015.

View on YouTube website

There has been much concern and mobilization to stop the plan to bury low and intermediate level nuclear waste next to Lake Huron. But what about the high level nuclear waste? Industry hopes to bury it too, they just don’t know where yet. Currently, there are 13 communities in Ontario and Saskatchewan involved in the ‘Learn More’ process with the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO), including one just NW of Toronto. The final promise is a $20-billion dollar construction project to bury at least 4.6 million used fuel bundles.

There are significant critiques about burying nuclear waste, and a history of failures for the industry. This forum presents frontline voices who have been resisting both the creation of nuclear waste, and the burial.
