The Questions Multiply"
recorded at the Environment North AGM,
The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is planning to select a site to bury all of Canada's high-level nuclear fuel waste in 2024! One of the two potential sites is near Revell Lake, between Dryden and Ignace.
If the Revell Site were selected, radioactive nuclear fuel waste would travel from southern Ontario (mostly), through Thunder Bay to the site at about 2 loads per day for 5 decades, and then be processed on-site for burial. There, it would have to be isolated from the environment for at least 100,000 years.
What is the history of this proposal,
and what are the dangers?
