Oppose Canadian plan for nuclear waste storage near Lake Huron

Because the five Great Lakes are shared US-Canadian trust resources - - note, for example, that some Canadian officials have already stated their opposition to Waukesha's plan for a Lake Michigan diversion - - in 2013, here, and last week, here - -  the advisory role also can flow the other way.

There is a Canadian plan to bury nuclear waste very close to Lake Huron and Americans are free to comment on it through Sept. 1:
Thirty million people live in the Great Lakes basin. Millions more live   downstream of the Great Lakes.  
All of them, we hope, will write Canadian Minister of the Environment Leona Aglukkaq and beg her to not risk our water and our future on something so flagrantly foolhardy. Send your comments on the OPG nuclear storage site to: 
National Programs  
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency 22nd Floor, 160 Elgin St., Ottawa, ON K1A 0H3  
Or send comments via email to The deadline for submitting comments is Sept. 1.
