“How can it possibly be ethical and environmentally-responsible to put plutonium and other very long-lived radioactive wastes in a landfill beside the Ottawa River? I have talked to many people on both sides of the river, all the way to Montreal, and everyone I have spoken to thinks this is a terrible idea.”

Johanna Echlin

“I call it  ‘Dollar Store Decommissioning’ for a very simple set of reasons: CNL’s plans are cheap on facilities, cheap on seriously considering alternative sites to receive the waste, cheap on best practices to properly decommission the Chalk River site; and finally cheap when compared to the original planning estimates under the NLLP and site wide decommissioning plans.”
