FEDS PUSH BACK DEADLINE FOR NUKE WASTE APPROVAL

The Trudeau government has delayed the deadline – for approving a plan to bury nuclear waste near Lake Huron.

March 1st is the new deadline.

Initially, the government was supposed to decide by September –  whether to give the go-ahead for the proposed deep geologic repository.

But the previous Conservative government pushed that back until December – after the election.

A $1-billion underground storage bunker near Kincardine, Ontario has gotten preliminary approval – but needs a green light from Ottawa.

Critics argue it would be folly to bury the toxic waste close to the lake.
