Nuclear Waste? No Thanks!

Nuclear Waste? No Thanks!

Please join us for an information exchange and strategy session about highly radioactive nuclear fuel waste.

Thursday, February 18th, 7 pm
Chat Noir Books, 57 Whitewood Avenue
New Liskeard

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization is expected to launch their siting process for a nuclear waste dump (or a "national infrastructure project" as the NWMO now calls it) early in 2010. In anticipation of this - and the campaign the nuclear industry is about to unleash to try to persuade a community to place itself on the receiving end of all of Canada's highly radioative nuclear fuel waste - Northwatch is holding a series of small strategy sessions across the northeast in advance of the NWMO's official launch.

The session at Chat Noir on Thursday, February 18th will include a brief overview to share information about nuclear waste and the NWMO's intentions, and then an open discussion about what is needed locally and regionally to be able to respond effectively to the nuclear industry's efforts to site a nuclear waste repository in northern Ontario.

Please join us. For more information in advance of the February 18th session, visit, or Northwatch's web site about nuclear waste in Canada at
