Northwatch has both an updated webpage  www.bruce-nuclear-waste-burial.ca and a backgrounder  Updated Backgrounder(02/2017) that contains sample comment points for the current public comment period to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) on additional information provided by Ontario Power Generation on their proposed deep underground dump for "low" and "intermediate" radioactive wastes from their 20 Ontario reactors. The proposed dump would have an entrance less than a mile from Lake Huron - one of the Laurentian Great Lakes, which provide roughly 90% of North America's surface fresh water. Additional information was requested by the Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change in the spring of 2016. The public now has an opportunity to comment on whether OPG has provided the information requested by the Minister, and also comment on the information they have provided.

Written comments must be sent by 11:59pmEST March 6, 2017 by mail or email to:

Deep Geologic Repository Project
Project Manager
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
160 Elgin Street, 22nd Floor, Ottawa ON  K1A 0H3

CEAA.DGR.Project-Projet.DGR.ACEE@ceaa-acee.gc.ca

The CEAA has assured us that comments mailed in that have a postmark of March 6th will be accepted, but the CEAA encourages people to make comments electronically (by midnight (Eastern) of March 6th) or mail out through the postal system earlier than March 6th, if possible.

The CEAA will then write a draft report with their analysis of OPG's additional information and also comments received.
The public and Indigenous groups will then have the opportunity to review and comment on the CEAA's report.
