Bruce County Looks Affirm Support for DGR

Bruce County | by John Divinski  

A Notice of Motion encourages the government of Canada and all nuclear regulatory agencies to continue finding locations.

The only way to store nuclear waste long-term, is to build Deep Geological Repositories (DGR's) somewhere in Canada.

County councillor and Mayor of Saugeen Shores Luke Charbonneau presented the notice to Thursday's meeting.

Charbonneau says "Let's ensure we handle nuclear waste materials appropriately and in a way that matches settled and established science, internationally."

He says to him, that means the establishment of a DGR to dispose the waste.

Charbonneau says it's not a knee-jerk reaction to the Saugeen Ojibway Nation vote January 31st where a DGR is Kincardine was turned down.

He says that decision has been made and now the issue is what to do with the waste.

Charbonneau says his Notice of Motion encourages the government of Canada and all nuclear regulatory agencies to continue with finding appropriate locations where a DGR could be built.

Charbonneau is hoping Bruce County will re-affirm its support for a DGR to store nuclear waste be built in Canada.

County council will discuss at its March meeting.
