Get the Ontario Power Generation to stop their Proposal for the Kincardine Nuclear Waste Repository.

Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar power generation company, is trying to seek approval to build a nuclear waste dump (a Deep Geological Repository or DGR) 1 km from the shores of Lake Huron. 

Some of this nuclear waste remains toxic and lethal for over 100,000 years.

This dump puts at risk the fresh  drinking water of the GREAT LAKES, relied upon by 40 million people in two countries. Any risk of buried nuclear waste entering the largest body of fresh water in the world is too great a risk to take, and need not be taken. 

No scientist or geologist can provide a 100,000 year guarantee that this nuclear waste will not leak and contaminate the Great Lakes. In fact, the only operating nuclear waste repository in the world called the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, located in New Mexico has now leaked. OPG based its safety case on the design and safety track of this repository.


We can and must deliver an overwhelming wave of opposition to OPG's plan. Tell Premier Wynne and Minister Aglukkaq  to stand up for the protection of the Great Lakes. 

We call on you to refuse Ontario Power Generation’s application to build an underground Deep Geological Repository for radioactive nuclear waste within the Municipality of Kincardine on the shores of Lake Huron that would threaten the drinking water of 40 million Canadians and Americans.

We stand with concerned citizens in opposition to the building of an underground nuclear waste dump anywhere in the Great Lakes Basin.

      An expedient solution that has ramifications which are potentially disastrous in the long-term. You can do better, Canada!

      It's common sense not to put your waste near your drinking water, at least untreated; but there is no know way to treat nuclear waste (remove the radioactivity from it).

      We are blessed to have a clean water source, but that will no longer be true if nuclear waste is stored near that source.
