August 4, 2017 - Canada-U.S. International Joint Commission on the Great Lakes - Greening said that while underground storage makes more sense than leaving it on the surface, the proposed site isn’t ideal. He said in the 1980s OPG hoped to bury it in the granite Canadian Shield – a rock known for being practically impermeable to water, economically unimportant and geologically stable on top of being a sparsely populated region – but was blocked when people in northern Ontario opposed it, and Manitoba passed a resolution preventing nuclear waste from Ontario being disposed of in the province. Rather than find another site on the Shield, Greening said, OPG wants to take it underground near where it already is.
