Nuclear waste is the most toxic waste ever produced by mankind.  These toxic wastes are literally indestructible. We don’t know how to shut off radioactivity. We have to store these wastes safely and somehow keep it out of the environment for these incredibly long times. For the benefit of what? Twenty or 30 years of electricity?

Dr. Gordon Edwards, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility

“If the proposed facility fails to meet regulatory requirements for health, safety and protection of the environment, a great deal of money, time and effort will have been wasted in a misguided effort to accelerate the reduction of the nuclear legacy liabilities currently on the balance sheet of the Government of Canada”.
