March getting underway against planned Nuclear Waste Storage Bunker at Bruce Power

A member of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation is urging her peers to vote “no” on Friday for Ontario Power Generation’s proposed Deep Geological Repository for low and medium nuclear waste right beside Lake Huron.

Kim George of Southampton organized a March against the plan from 4 p.m. until sunset on Wednesday at the Aaron Roote Memorial Youth Centre on Highway 21.

George also claimes OPG is trying to buy their vote.

The vote is being held this Friday, and ballots will be tallied after 8 p.m.

The nuclear storage site would be built far below ground at the bruce power site. OPG has promised not to build it without First Nation support.
