Huron-Bruce MP Ben Lobb will be expressing his support for the OPG DGR to Canada’s new Minister of Environment and Climate Change when the House of Commons reconvenes on Dec. 3.
Lobb, who returns to Ottawa after his October reelection to a third term, outlined his plan to speak “face-to-face” with Minister Catherine McKenna about her pending decision on the construction license for the low and intermediate level nuclear waste project at the Bruce nuclear site.
“We’ll make sure that we have our input,” Lobb said in a telephone interview.
Extended to December 2015 by former Conservative minister Leona Aglukkaq, the decision was delayed amidst mounting oppositions from dozens of Canadian and American organizations and First Nations communities around the Great Lakes that want the project halted, or delayed.
