Letters to the editor provide support for the NWMO’s Deep Geological process and for finding a long-term solution to used nuclear fuel.
Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) Grandmothers and community members embarked on a three day ceremonial Waterwalk to the proposed site of a high-level nuclear waste deep geologic repository (DGR).
The CNSC staff members began with an overview of their respective roles, and highlighted their mandate to “regulate the use of nuclear energy and materials, implement Canada’s international commitments on peaceful use of nuclear energy, and disseminate objective, scientific, technical and, regulatory information.”
