Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump

This issue poses a serious threat to the clean water that is vital to the production of organic foods.

Ontario Power Generation is proposing to build an underground Nuclear Waste Dump approximately 400 metres from Lake Huron. No scientist can guarantee that this Nuclear Waste Dump will not leak.

Burying nuclear waste that remains radioactive for over 100,000 years beside such an important water source simply defies common sense. Approval of this dump could happen in 9 short months.

Not only are the Great Lakes the source of drinking water for 40 million people in Canada and the US, they serve as an important water source for organic farmers in many communities.

Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump

Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of ordinary Canadians who believe that the protection of the Great Lakes from buried radioactive nuclear waste is responsible stewardship, and is of national and international importance.

The Great Lakes were created by an ice age 12,000 years ago.

The Egyptian pyramids were created 4,500 years ago.

Some nuclear waste remains radioactive for 100,000 years.

The Great Lakes constitute 21% of the world’s fresh water.

The Great Lakes are the water source supporting 40 million people in 2 countries.

An underground nuclear waste dump approximately 400 metres from Lake Huron defies common sense.
