TERRACE BAY, Ont. — The council of this Northwestern Ontario municipality heard from opponents of storing nuclear waste in Schreiber.
Schreiber is currently being considered as a potential host community for a deep geological repository for nuclear waste. The plans have met strong opposition across the region.
Along with a presentation Monday night, the group known as Citizen’s Concerned About Nuclear Waste in Schreiber gave councillors a petition with more than 1,000 signatures.
Kyle Gilbert is the groups spokesman, and says they are opposed to any plan for storying nuclear waste anywhere in the area.
