Stop Nuclear Dumps on the Ottawa River TUESDAY NOVEMBER 6, at 12 noon Sparks St. and Kent St.
“Gather and march to oppose plans to build a giant radioactive waste dump near the Ottawa River – and to bury an old reactor in cement.
Radioactive materials including tritium and plutonium would leak into the Ottawa River, endangering health.
These plans have been hatched by multinational corporations running the Chalk River nuclear laboratories, upstream from Ottawa-Gatineau. But the facilities are owned and paid for by the federal government. Taxpayers are paying over $500 million per year.
This nuclear waste will be hazardous and radioactive for 100,000+ years!
Stay tuned for details of the march route. Come out and stop these unacceptable plans.”
