CNSC refuses request for additional open houses

Dear Editor,
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has recently refused a request made by 27 different individuals and organizations to hold additional open houses along the Ottawa River in Quebec and Ontario.
In early October, the CNSC offered open houses in three different communities, Sheenboro, Deep River and Pembroke, regarding the environmental assessment of CNL’s proposed massive, above-ground mound for the disposal of radioactive waste at Chalk River. These three locations are close to Chalk River but environmental damage could extend hundreds of kilometres downriver. The request to the CNSC was made in a letter dated Sept. 27.
