Members of the South Bruce Community Liaison Committee (CLC) learned about the NWMO’s borehole drilling and testing activities, slated to begin in the coming weeks.
The NWMO has just begun to pour money into our community, in the form of jobs and donations, and they will undoubtedly continue to do so, as long as the process runs.
The Municipality of South Bruce responded to a letter received on Feb. 23 from David Donnelly. The lawyer represents opponents of the proposed deep geological repository (DGR) with their lawyer’s correspondence.
It has yet to be determined if South Bruce is a viable site at all, in terms of willingness and technical soundness. What has been determined, without a doubt, is the varying opinions this project has brought from community members.
Sheila Whytock, founder of the South Bruce DGR – Willing to Listen organization, was a guest on the ‘We CANDU It’ podcast recently.
France has long been a leader in nuclear power, with 58 reactors, about three times as many as Canada. It turns out that France is approximately 10 years ahead of Canada in the DGR process, but after that, there are remarkable similarities.

I think it’s time for the people of Bruce County – and South Bruce in particular – to ask themselves a difficult question. Are we for or against nuclear power?
A group of people calling themselves “South Bruce DGR-Willing to Listen”, says a group opposed to a proposed nuclear waste storage facility is pushing for a referendum too quickly.
We need to continue with the process so that South Bruce residents can make a decision from a fully-informed perspective, and not half-truths or misleading data.
