Concerns over transport of nuclear wastes through Northern Ontario

the project hasn’t been discussed enough in communities that might be close to the transportation corridors used to move the waste.

Nuclear waste disposal up for debate in northern Ontario MP hosting meetings across region to shed more light on plans to store nuclear waste in north CBC News   Nov 12, 2012   A northern Ontario MP is holding a series of town hall meetings about the possible transportation and disposal of nuclear waste in northern
Ontario to make sure everybody knows what the project entails.

Blind River, Elliot Lake, Spanish and the Township of the North Shore
have all passed initial screenings in the search to find a home for
Canada’s first nuclear waste disposal site. But Thunder Bay-Superior
North MP Bruce Hyer said he’s concerned the project hasn’t been discussed enough in communities that might be close to the transportation corridors used to move the waste…..
“Deferring the discussion with the communities along the likely
transportation routes is not a good idea. It’s my contention that not
just a few small towns [should] decide whether this waste comes to
northern Ontario.”

If it’s approved, more than 600 shipments of nuclear waste would be
transported annually to the new long-term disposal site…..
Michael Krizanc said it will still be at least another decade before
the location for the nuclear disposal site is chosen.

On Monday night, Hyer will hold a town hall meeting in Sudbury at St.
Andrew’s Place on Larch Street from 7-9 p.m. Another meeting will take
place in Sault Ste. Marie on Nov. 13.

Hyer said he will hold a number of other town hall meetings in
northwestern Ontario over the next few weeks. So far, Hyer has held
townhall meetings in Oshawa and Parry Sound.
