“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.”

“The take-away message for international delegates to this meeting is clear”, said Echlin. “Do not do what Canada has done and hand control of decommissioning and radioactive waste to a multinational private sector consortium, in the absence of policies and strategies that ensure safety. This has been a disaster for us”.
