The dispatch from Fred Ryan on Wednesday, February 14, urgently needs to be more widely disseminated. As a summary of a barely credible proposal, it is readable, clear and damning.

Vast quantities of nuclear waste are to be dumped at a site adjacent to the Ottawa River with only a plastic lining to protect the water supply of millions of Ontario and Québec citizens from contamination. Safety features ludicrously apparently include an inflatable boat, an off-road vehicle and storage garages. None of these addresses the issue of contaminated drinking water.
As a citizen of the United Kingdom who has spent most of her 70 odd summers on an island on the Ottawa River, I am astonished by the seemingly blind eye turned by government and municipal authorities to the implications of this disastrous proposal.
