The extension is intended to allow a public comment period focusing on input from the aboriginal nations involved.

The comment period ends September 1st, and the Minister’s decision is expected by December 2nd.

Nuclear dump assessment results made public

Ontario Power Generation’s, or OPG’s, proposed nuclear dump has been declared safe enough to construct by a Canadian Joint Review Panel of scientists.

The panel submitted over 400 pages of analysis to the Minister. She now has 4 months to decide whether or not to grant OPG a permit to construct.

The panel recommended numerous plans of action that OPG will need to account for if they want to retain their accepted status.

They will need to go through another assessment to earn a permit to use it.
