More Interest in Nuclear Fuel

Central Huron | by Dianne Colgan  

Central Huron is latest municipality to look at hosting used nuclear fuel.


Central Huron is the latest municipality to look at hosting a storage site for used nuclear fuel.

Mayor Jim Ginn says they haven't officially expressed an interest but are just gathering information on whether it's a viable option for the community.

Ginn says the decision to look into it stems from the job losses at the Bluewater Youth Centre and the shaky employment ground underneath the Clinton Raceway and Slots.

He says they'll certainly be consulting with the public every step of the way due to the controversial nature of what would be stored.

Ginn says they've contacted the Nuclear Waste Management Organization and are just now waiting to hear back from them.

He says the first step is will be to send a delegation to Toronto so they can go over what expectations are held from both sides.

Several municipalities in the region are also looking for more information on the process and many others have officially expressed an interest in hosting the site.
