As the first week of the new year begins to wrap up, Kincardine's potential nuclear waste bunker continues to be a major talking point.
Kincardine Mayor Anne Eadie recently wrote to Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna that the community supports the plan to hold a nuclear waste bunker site.
Mayor Eadie explains that the science is there and feels the decision is the right one.
However, a number of Great Lakes Mayor and Elected Officials (104 to be exact) are in strong disagreement with the proposed Deep Geological Repository feeling that their are better alternatives.
Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley indicates the fact that a large number of communities feel this way sends a strong message.
Ontario Power Generation is currently in talks with the Saugeen Ojibway Nation about the proposed plan to build the nuclear waste bunker on the shores of Lake Huron.
Nuclear waste is currently being stored safely on the surface at Bruce Power located in Tiverton.
