Opposition To OPG’s Nuclear Repository Grows

Ontario Power Generation’s plan to build an underground nuclear repository a kilometre from Lake Huron has hit another roadblock.

Senator Carl Levin of Michigan has filed a resolution that urges the Obama administration to oppose any such plan in the Great Lakes Basin.

Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley says the ball started rolling because a flood of objectors forced a second regulatory hearing in Kincardine that continues until October 12.

Mayor Bradley calls Senator Levin’s resolution a “game changer” that sends a powerful message to the Canadian government that approval of the repository will have huge international repercussions.
