Nuclear waste

Many existing and proposed nuclear power facilities and nuclear waste sites are on the shores of the lakes, rivers, and oceans across Canada. There is a risk that nuclear waste could leach into groundwater and even surface water that communities depend on.

The federal government has been letting the nuclear industry manage its own radioactive waste for years with minimal oversight – one of the many examples of corporate capture in the country. At the same time, the federal government has been subsidizing the development of dangerous nuclear technology with no plan to safely dispose of the additional waste created over the coming decades.

Industry won’t regulate itself. We need strong, transparent, and effective federal oversight of the nuclear industry to avoid leaving a radioactive legacy to the generations that will come after us.
