2018-02-21 House of Commons electronic petition (on nuke waste) — people with Canadian addresses only, please!
Thanks to Janet M:
Easy petition to sign electronically!
Petition to the Government of Canada
- The federal government “owns” over 2 million cubic meters of radioactive waste, none of which is securely contained in long-term management facilities;
- A consortium of five multinational corporations has been contracted to operate all federal nuclear sites where this waste is found;
- The International Atomic Energy Agency says the preferred option for managing radioactive waste is to isolate it from the biosphere; and
- The consortium appears to be attempting to maximize its profits by proposing “quick and cheap” disposal options that would not keep radioactive waste isolated from the biosphere.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1) Enact strict regulations to keep radioactive waste out of the biosphere;
2) Build state of the art facilities for its own radioactive waste;
3) Reform the nuclear governance system to ensure that radioactive waste is managed according to best international practices and standards; and
4) Take profit out of radioactive waste management.
