Nuclear waste repositories move ahead


And just yesterday I was complaining that nothing was happening!

With the sudden re-interest in the Chalk River site, Canada continues to favour the worst sites in the world. I have never mentioned this site because I followed the original studies 20-30 years ago.  This is truly the 'Heart of Darkness' for seismically active sites, right where a megathrust comes against the Ottawa Graben and the active Western Quebec Zone.  Just up the river we had the M6.2 Timiskaming earthquake.

And the Bruce hearings go ahead.  They should be about as much fun as the Darlington hearings!  In other words, absolute nonsense.
