Snip:OTTAWA - "As plans progress for a radioactive-waste site buried deep in Ontario
limestone, the federal nuclear watchdog says the related safety research is full
of holes..."


Snip: "The Citizens Environmental Alliance last June gave OPG the dubious 2008 Weenie
Award for environmental degradation. It blasted the giant utility for planning
the repository so close to Lake Huron - a precious freshwater resource.


'Once a facility like this is built it is more than likely going to be the
permanent site' for nuclear waste from across Canada, alliance research and
policy director Derek Coronado said at the time.

'Any contamination of the Great Lakes and we're all in serious trouble.'

Environmental activists want more focus on renewable energy sources such as wind
and solar power."
