ONE DGR DOWN, ONE MORE TO GO!!!

Click on the link for the latest press release from Protect Our Waterways (POW) - No Nuclear Waste regarding the cancellation of the low/intermediate level DGR for the Bruce Power site.

POW - No Nuclear Waste is grateful to the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) for the community's decisive No vote against the low/intermediate nuclear waste dump in their traditional territory which effectively ended this project.

THE HARD WORK IS NOT OVER!

With the cancellation of the low/intermediate nuclear dump we anticipate the NWMO will seek new and creative means to ensure the high level radioactive waste dump is established in South Bruce.

POW - No Nuclear Waste will continue to mobilize stakeholders with events and information sessions coming soon which will challenge the science and the bias of the NWMO's plan to site the world's most dangerous waste in our community.

THE COMMUNITY PARADE ON JUNE 9TH WAS A RESOUNDING SUCCESS!!!

See link to: Press Release

THANK YOU TO ALL FOR SHOWING UP AND PROCLAIMING LOUD AND CLEAR WE ARE NOT A WILLING HOST COMMUNITY FOR NUCLEAR WASTE!!!

NEARLY 200 VEHICLES ANSWERED THE CALL TO JOIN THE PARADE AND EXPRESS THIS VERY PUBLIC STATEMENT TO NWMO AND THE MUNICIPALITY OF SOUTH BRUCE OPPOSING THE DGR NUKE DUMP!

THIS ROLLING CONVOY PASSED THROUGH THE MAIN STREET'S OF TEESWATER, MILDMAY AND FORMOSA. THANK YOU TO ALL RESIDENTS WHO RAN OUT TO THE STREETS TO SHOW SUPPORT BY BANGING POTS AND HOLDING UP SIGNS OPPOSING THE NUKE DUMP IN SOUTH BRUCE! 

THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO ALSO ADDED THEIR NAME TO THE PETITION WHILE ENTERING THE PARADE!

SEE GALLERY SECTION FOR PICTURES FROM THE EVENT!

WE ARE BUILDING A SIGNIFICANT PUBLIC RECORD OF OPPOSITION. WHICH CANNOT BE DENIED.


WE HAVE LISTENED TO THE NWMO FOR 8 YEARS.


WE ARE  INFORMED AND WE ARE NOT A WILLING HOST COMMUNITY FOR HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE NUCLEAR WASTE!

 

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

The proposed nuclear dump would be located directly underneath this beautiful river. A source of stunning beauty, recreation and heritage for our community. Is money and economic development worth so much that we would harm this important gift. Its meandering path to the mighty Saugeen River and the Great Lakes needs our help. Tell South Bruce Council and the NWMO NO Nuke Dump in South Bruce!

 

BUILDING MOMENTUM AGAINST THE DGR IN SOUTH BRUCE!!!

Status update on the Stop the DGR in South Bruce Petition.

More South Bruce residents have signed the petition against the DGR than voted for our current Mayor in the last Municipal election! When will South Bruce Council recognize the democratic will of residents?

Our organization thanks everyone for their requests for No Nuke Dump signs. They are flying off the shelf!  We have had so many requests for signs and we promise we are doing our best to keep up with demand. 

Thank you everyone for helping us Paint South Bruce yellow and demonstrating loud and clear to NWMO and South Bruce Council "We are informed and We are NOT a willing host community for nuclear waste".

Also  see more updates to our new section under Research - Alternative uses for highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel.

 
 

WHO WE ARE

We are Protect Our Waterways - No Nuclear Waste (formerly Nuclear Tanks No Thanks), a concerned group of South Bruce citizens united in a common cause to prevent the establishment of a high level radioactive storage facility in our community known as a Deep Geological Repository (DGR).


We are composed of a wide cross section of South Bruce citizens, from farmers and rural land owners to residents within the villages of Teeswater, Mildmay, Formosa, Belmore, Carlsruhe and Deemerton.

 

OUR MISSION

To counter the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) and its surrogate supporters which in our opinion are not fully informing the citizens of South Bruce on the potential dangers, social stigma and downside risks of hosting this DGR facility in our community.

 

OUR CORE CONCERNS

We are not against nuclear power. We are against the exploitation of rural communities by the NWMO. The nuclear industry has had 50 years to solve this problem and now they want You to solve it for them. Are the so-called benefits from 40 years of active operations at the dump and 1,000's of radioactive truckloads of waste bound for our community worth the expense of our sustainable agricultural industry, the stigma of being known as Canada's Nuclear Dump and over 10's of thousands of years of highly radioactive waste at our feet?

 

OUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS DENIED?

On May 7th, Mayor of South Bruce, Bob Buckle penned an open letter to the Walkerton Herald Times titled South Bruce addresses concerns over Adaptive Phase Management project.

In this article Mayor Buckle indicates that "All decisions related to the site selection process will be made by municipal council with input from the Community Liaison Committee"

We ask that you keep your promise to the people Mayor Buckle!

“If two years from now, if I re-run for mayor and if I get in, I will insist that we have a referendum. Something as important as this I’m not going to let six people (on council) make that decision.”


Commit to a referendum on this project now! 

Don't abandon the democratic process!

 

Mayor Bob Buckle of South Bruce

The Buckle Promise


In an April 2016 article from the London Free Press, South Bruce Mayor Bob Buckle is quoted:


“This is going to be quite contentious once planning starts to ramp up"

Further Mayor Buckle stated:

“If two years from now, if I re-run for mayor and if I get in, I will insist that we have a referendum. Something as important as this I’m not going to let six people (on council) make that decision.”

Mayor Buckle, we completely agree! The time is now! NWMO has had 6 years to convince the community and they have failed. According to NWMO's own survey from Fall 2019 only 16% of residents are very aware of the project. Commit to a referendum now! Your community is divided. Don't make us suffer through 3 more years.

They have billions to spend and the full backing of an entire industry seeking to dump the world's most dangerous waste in our community. We are seeking the grassroots support of like minded communities and groups surrounding South Bruce, across Ontario and Canada who don't feel burying this waste down a limestone hole near our precious rivers, farmland, villages and Great Lakes and 'hoping for the best' is any kind of solution to the problem of nuclear waste.

Get in touch with us!

Sign our petition! Let our local council in South Bruce know we are not a willing host community for high level nuclear waste
