Saskatchewan targeted for High Level Nuclear Waste Disposal

Posted

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is looking for a place to bury high level nuclear waste in Canada. Three Saskatchewan communities have expressed interest in this plan: Pinehouse, Creighton and English River First Nation.

The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN) has accepted $1 million dollars from the NWMO for "capacity development, education and awareness and partnership opportunities with First Nations in Saskatchewan." Given that NWMO consists of nuclear power producers, the FSIN should be encouraged to seek independent information for communities to make an informed decision.

We say NO to nuclear waste dump in our province, and we call for a STOP to the production of nuclear waste.
