eaglewatch] CNSC approves nuclear waste transportation

from the Eagle Watch #108
February 5, 2011

Canada’s nuclear watchdog has announced their decision to allow Bruce Power to transport nuclear waste through the Great Lakes St.Lawrence watershed inspite of huge opposition from concerned individuals and communities.

Is this any surprise???

“Decision
9.

“Based on its consideration of the matter, as described in more detail in the following sections of this Record of Proceedings, the Commission concludes that Bruce Power is qualified to carry on the activity that the licence and certificate will authorize. The Commission is of the opinion that Bruce Power, in carrying on that activity, will make adequate provision for the protection of the environment, the health and safety of persons and the maintenance of national security and measures required to implement international obligations to which Canada has agreed.

“Therefore,  the Commission, pursuant to section 24 of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, issues to Bruce Power Inc. a transport licence and certificate for the transport of 16 decommissioned steam generators from the Western Waste Management Facility in the Municipality of Kincardine, Ontario to Nyköping, Sweden. The transport licence, TL-SX-40039.01.00/2011, and certificate, CDN/5255/X-96 (Rev.0), are valid from February 4, 2011 to February 3, 2012.”
