CTV London: Nuclear waste disposal concerns (January 2013)


An anti-nuclear waste group has found an unlikely ally in Bruce Power CEO Duncan Hawthorne. Scott Miller reports.

CTV news story about opposition to DGRs 1 and 2 growing in Bruce County, including the launch of the Blue Water Alliance; ends with interview with Duncan Hawthorne of Bruce Power, suggesting there is some form of common purpose between the citizen opposition to nuclear waste burial and Hawthorne’s support for the reprocessing of nuclear waste as an “alternative” to burial. What the story fails to mention is that reprocessing produces larger volumes of also highly radioactive liquid nuclear fuel waste, and brings with it a multitltued of environmental and worker exposures and proliferation risks. None of the groups opposing the nuclear waste burial schemes have expressed any support of reprocessing.
