Mr. Trudeau please stop Lake Huron nuke dump via The Times Herald

Dear Mr. Justin Trudeau:

Congratulations on your party’s victory this week in Canadian national elections. Nearly 70 percent of eligible Canadians cast votes in Monday’s federal election. That’s almost 12 percent more than the 2011 vote and the highest since 1993. Analysts attribute the high turnout to you, saying the Liberal Party energized and invigorated voters.


One of the things we like hearing is that you and your party are “greener” than Mr. Harper. Already, pundits on both sides of the border are writing their obituaries for the Keystone XL pipeline, even though you’ve supported it in the past. They say you’re OK with the pipeline, but not rabid about it the way Mr. Harper was.

Which brings us to our concern here in Port Huron.

Ontario Power Generation wants to bury tons of nuclear waste at Kincardine, just a few kilometers from Lake Huron and the world’s largest supply of fresh surface water. Mr. Harper’s environment minister was expected to issue a final ruling on OPG’s application in December.

We understand that a new, Liberal Party government means a new environment minister, one who, like you, values the planet Earth and its environment more than the Conservatives did. We’re hoping, Mr. Trudeau, that you and your new environment minister see OPG’s nuclear waste storage facility as the environmental catastrophe it is and put a stop to it.
