Radioactive dump hearings soon
The final licensing hearing for the Chalk River Mound is coming up on May 31.
Here are three things you can do to help derail the forces that are pushing to create a giant radioactive waste mound beside the Ottawa River, against common sense, Canadian regulations and international safety standards.
1) Apply to intervene orally or in writing at the final licensing hearings that begin on May 31. Many interventions would be good! Oral ones have a bigger impact. Deadline to apply is April 11.
2) Send a postcard! This is a campaign initiated by our good friend and colleague Dr. Judith Miller of the First United Church Water Care Allies.
3) Submit comments on Canada’s draft radioactive waste policy, much needed to avoid bad proposals like the NSDF. Participate in an informative briefing session and submit your comments by April 2.
Thanks everyone for your ongoing interest and support. Please share this update with any of your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues you think might be interested.
