Plans for a nuclear waste facility near the US-Canadian border – less than a mile from one of the world’s largest sources of fresh water – has triggered a public outcry among Americans and Canadians.

No. as part of a comunity that relies on the nuclear industry to survive. Just no.

to all who want them to not put it here, where else would they put it? it makes sense to put the waste facility near the worlds biggest site (when all 8 reactors are running, which on november 1, 2012, happened) nuclear is a very good alternative to fossil fuels and is much more cost efficent than solar or wind (both we also have in kincardine)

This is not acceptable!

Huron...small population in Quebec...call it Lake Wyandot like the Oklahoma folks.

What the heck does "First Nation" think of this plan? They used to fish there, no? Yeah, I doubt they'll want jobs cleaning up the Great Lake beaches after this new plan evolves. Maybe it dissolves...

Wonder why don't they put a storage site at area 51?... Or perhaps under the White House, then it will be 100% safe.

  


Could sell tickets for a chance to see that...

"Just dump it in the Lake..." That isn't very smart...yeah sure "it's not even in the lake." Really, is this a way for Canada to get back @ USA for acid rain?

"Just dump it in the River" they said in Cleveland and the River burned for a week.

" ;Just don't worry about it...it's in the Ocean." they said @ Turkey Point. And the heat killed all the game fish near Miami.

&quo t;Just cap it best we can...and California's on the other side of the Pacific" they said @ TEPCO.

Now there's another verse to that old stand by hit : "Blame Canada" (tongue in cheek).

Rea lly got to be better jobs than picking up dead fish...take care.

If they do this at Lake Huron, we, for hundreds of miles around here, are all as good as dead. Lake Huron is the wrong location for this, and if they do not know that they are fools, and if they do know it and do not care, then they are also fools.

How about using a system of generating power that doesn't require the need for a "nuclear waste dump" site. Fukushima has been dumping nuclear waste into the ocean for nearly 2 years and I'm sure the board at TEPCO was positive its plant posed no immediate threat to the Pacific Ocean and life as we know it.

I live in Kincardine and I am 17 years old. I think this is a great idea, it will create jobs for 10's of years to come. This stuff won't get out, it won't even be in the lake. there are a whole lot of complainers out there, but no better idea's. What are they going to do put windmills everywhere? They already have here, and everyone cries about those too so I don't think you'll ever make everyone happy. So stop your complaining or take yourself off of hydro tough guys.

this is a global trend and its alarming.. nuclear industry is faced with fatigue and decay.. installations are reaching the end of their service cycles without new investments to replace em, regulations add costs every year, renewables claim significant portion of funds etc.. the problem is this: how do we "phase out" an industry whose "aftermath" ; needs to be looked after for the next 100 years at least? doing it in a free market economy fashion (as it looks we are doing so far) is like playing with matches in a room full of extinction level powder kegs..

 

sangye thubten 29.10.2013 08:22

Wonder why don't they put a storage site at area 51? At least it is very safe and secure. Or perhaps under the White House, then it will be 100% safe.

 

Leanne Flynn 29.10.2013 03:45

'presently stored above ground' !!! 30, 000 plus containers! and how many people have an atrocious ringing in their ears? we have been petitioning for YEARS provincial, federal gov't, canadian military and UN for anti-terrorist teams to assist us. the massive leak in 2009 is being lied about and covered up using this atrocious scheme. Thank you, RT for reporting some of these threatening issues.

 

Dick Kahrs 28.10.2013 18:15

Politicians are liars.

All that mankind builds will fail at some point in time.

There is nothing nuclear that is safe!

 

Elsie Yarham 28.10.2013 18:03

Only 100 miles from what's-left-of Detroit.

Don't start what you cannot control.

  

That appears to be mankinds biggest problem, they think they can control everything. Gives a whole new meaning to the story of Lucifer and the angels who went along with him, doesn't it ?
That's not to say that mankind, hasn't come up with a few so so ideas, but that's just it, a few. And this isn't a Christian rant, just making referrence to a very old story, that fits mankinds predicament today. Thinking they are god's. That they have total control, and they can fit the world into their box.

Just do it, just destroy as much as you can, ruin everything and get it over with. Just utterly ruin everything, in one feel sweep.

  


Th en after it's all done, and a vast majority of humans are eliminated, the ones left can start all over again, because regardless if you vote and get involved, nothing will get better, I know, I've voted from the time I've been legal able to, gotten inolved, outside of quitting my real life and job, done that too, and look at how many more nuclear facilties there are today, from when I began my "sacntified&quo t; involvement.

 

Margaret Lynn 28.10.2013 17:39

I love the superior minds who want to point fingers and say, " vote, get involved, stop complaining."
And yet they don't even know if those complaining, vote, or get involved, to the best of their abilities.
Peopl e've been voting and getting involved from before I was born, which was 1960, for anyone who gives a poo, and yet those same people who're doing more than just complaining, see the things getting worse, not better, regardless of anything they do.

Just do it, just destroy as much as you can, ruin everything and get it over with. Just utterly ruin everything, in one feel sweep.

 

Vineca Gray 28.10.2013 17:24

Reading all of these passionate outcries, you would serve yourselves (and the planet) to actually get involved. Complaining doesn't change anything. Work with like-minded people toward a better world, support sustainable energy technologies. You are a constituent, you are a consumer and that matters to politicians. You have been warned.
