“CNL should explore the 70,000 acres of federal land adjacent to the Chalk River Labs property to find a more suitable location. With a better location, away from the river and in stable rock, we could all get behind this project and build a facility that Canada can be proud of.”

Dr. Ole Hendrickson, CCRCA

“Our international guests must know that an above ground landfill is only acceptable for very low-level radioactive waste and entirely inadequate for wastes that will endure for a hundred thousand years. The proposed Chalk River mound would contaminate the Ottawa River and drinking water for millions of Canadians downstream for millennia. This is a terrible example to set for the world.”
