E-M:/ Canada moves forward with Lake Huron nuke dump, but Michigan may have no say



Folks,

Now is the time to contact Governor Granholm, elected officials, especially Federal Legislators, and urge them to request a 90 day extension of the comment period. Ask them to insist that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency hold informational meetings in Michigan. This proposed radioactive waste dump is destined to last for millions of years, so why the rush? The state of Michigan, Anishibaabek and First Nations all share responsibility for the waters of Lake Huron with Canada -as well as the fate of those waters. -Kay Cumbow

Critics say failure to involve Michigan may violate international treaty

Millions of people in Michigan get their drinking water downstream from Kincardine, Ontario, where a nuclear waste dump is planned near the shore of Lake Huron. But under draft guidelines for the project, Michigan will not be considered as part of the region that could potentially be impacted by the Canadian version of the proposed Yucca Mountain underground storage facility in Nevada.
