No nuke waste on the Great Lakes


From The Michigan Business Network: U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Gary Peters (D-MI) introduced a resolution opposing Canada’s placement of a permanent nuclear waste storage site near the shared Great Lakes Basin. Canada is currently considering a storage site at South Bruce, just 30 miles from Lake Huron. The resolution urges President Biden and his administration to work with the Canadian government to find an alternative location to permanently store nuclear waste that does not pose a threat to the Great Lakes.

“Placing a nuclear waste facility next to one of the world’s largest supplies of freshwater makes absolutely no sense and is dangerous. Our Great Lakes are central to our Michigan way of life, and any nuclear waste spill would be devastating. I strongly urge our Canadian neighbors to make the right choice and stop any plans to store nuclear waste so close to the Great Lakes,” said Senator Stabenow.
