ACTION ALERT: Stop the shipment of dangerous nuclear waste
Sierra Club Canada has learned Bruce Power plans to ship 16 radioactive steam generators out of Owen Sound, ON. The radioactive generators from a faulty reactor are slated to travel via the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River to a recycling facility in Sweden.

Bruce Power is rushing ahead with its proposal while serious questions remain unanswered about the procedure. For example, why is the waste being shipped to Sweden when, according to the original environmental assessment, it was to be stored on-site? (Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX1KJNKL3vA) Sierra Club Canada is calling for a stay in shipping until a full environmental impact assessment is conducted and all questions are answered.
