CFNO (Al Cresswell): Longtime Nuclear Waste Management Organization employee Michael Krizanc is calling it a career. The NWMO’s communications director is retiring at month’s end. He’s being replaced by Bradley Hammond. The former Ontario Ministry of Energy staffer says he’s looking forward to the challenge.

BRADLEY HAMMOND (New Communications Director for the NWMO): It’s one of the most fascinating projects out there in Canada right now. It represents some meaningful opportunities for the communities that are involved. And I think the direction of the organization is a positive one, and I’m really thrilled to have the opportunity to get together, and learn from Mike as we’re out on the road, and you know, learn from the communities that we get a chance to interact with and be in. So it’s a pleasure so far.

CFNO: The NWMO is seeking a community in which to house a deep geological repository, one that would house nuclear waste. There are currently nine Canadian communities still in the running, including the towns of Manitouwadge, Hornepayne, and White River.
