The government of Canada’s website clearly shows the Ottawa River is an active seismic zone!

Why are we still ignoring the threats the proposed dump will have on the area when the ground shakes? Have politicians and leaders considered the financial depression that will affect municipalities along the river? Have they considered that people may start moving out of the area, or choose not to vacation or retire here? And all those places take drinking water from the river too, don’t they? 
Considering the river empties into the ocean, contamination will spread beyond the Pontiac and affect millions. This is not about short term gain for some jobs, it’s long term sustainability of humans. What do you know about radioactive materials in drinking water? In land? In the air? How long does it stay in the environment? What is really safe?
We cannot protest this plan for the nuclear dump, then accept their actions, then promote tourism… that’s insane! Those invested in tourism better get on the soapbox quick.
Forget all other issues in the area for the moment – this is THE issue that impacts all
of life as we know it.
