DGR Anger in Saugeen Shores

Saugeen Shores | by John Divinski  

Resident claims Council is holding 'secret meetings' over Deep Geological Repository.

The Deep Geological Repository process undertaken by Saugeen Shores was front and centre again at town council.

Saugeen Shores resident John Mann -- who has made similar presentations in the past -- suggested the town has acted inappropriately regarding the process.

As vocal as Mann is in council chambers he's tight-lipped about this concerns with the media.

For the second time in as many presentations, Mann has declined to comment on what he said, for the media.

However, Deputy Mayor Luke Charbonneau says some of the implications made by Mann are simply not true.

Charbonneau says the accusations made by Mann regarding secret meetings have been heard time and time again and have yet to be proven with facts.

Mann says council is not talking with the community about a potential DGR project in Saugeen Shores which is not the way democracy is supposed to operate.

He says residents are guinea pigs in the process for a DGR to handle spent nuclear fuel.

Mann suggests the community is an unwilling host when it comes to the DGR in Saugeen Shores but still the process goes on.

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization will make a presentation about the DGR process to Huron Kinloss Council on Tuesday night.

The NWMO was at Brockton's Council meeting on Monday night.
