U-S Politicians at DGR Hearing

Kincardine | by John Divinski  

Two Michigan politicians will voice opposition to DGR plan along Lake Huron.

Week three of the hearing into a Deep Geological Repository in Kincardine for low and intermediate nuclear waste could prove to be interesting.

Michigan State Senator Hoon-Yung Hopgood along with Michigan House of Representatives member Sarah Roberts will be travelling to Kincardine to make 10-minute oral statements on the DGR's potential aquatic effects.

Many in Michigan are opposed to the project.

Then on Thursday, energy and climate campaigner with Greenpeace Canada, Shawn-Patrick Stensil will have 30-minutes to present his group's opinion of the DGR.

As we told you last week, OPP were talking to some presenters, reminding them that they would not tolerate any demonstrations at the Kincardine Legion hearing site.

Apparently there was a kangaroo that didn't get the memo.

At least it was a person dressed as a kangaroo that was hopping around the site, pointing out that the DGR hearings were a kangaroo court.

The hearings have pretty much run overtime every single day, except last Friday.

The entire process had to be out of the Legion at noon sharp, because a wedding was taking over.

Meanwhile, the group "Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump'' says 34 thousand people have signed its petition against the plan.
