Don't bury nuclear waste near the Great Lakes

Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

Thank you for your interest in this important issue. The comment period for storing nuclear waste nearing the Great Lakes is now closed.

You can still have your say by emailing federal environment Minister Catherine McKenna directly at ec.ministre-minister.ec@canada.ca.

While you're here, please sign our petition calling for an independent review of nuclear and alternatives.


Of course it's not a good idea to bury radioactive nuclear waste near the Great Lakes, a source of drinking water for 40 million Canadians and Americans.

Yet OPG plans to bury nuclear waste 1km from Lake Huron, 400 metres below the water level threatens the drinking water for 40 million people.

Speak out now to help protect our water. Deadline for input is March 6.

We’ve made it easy to send a letter to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency through our form below.
