To all Nuclear Waste Watchers:
Christopher Read, TV journalist with APTN, has just completed a half-hour documentary on NWMO’s plans for a permanent underground nuclear waste dump for all of Canada’s HLW.
It will include a portion of an interview with me, done from my dining room.
It will be broadcast this Friday, November 26, on the program “APTN Investigates” (7pm EDT).
It is an update to his two-part documentary of February 2020 entitled “Nuclear Courtship”.
APTN = Aboriginal People’s Television Network
HLW = high Level Nuclear Waste, also known as “irradiated nuclear fuel” or “used nuclear fuel”
NWMO = Nuclear Waste Management Organization, owned by the three utilities that produce high-level nuclear waste: Ontario Power Generation, Hydro-Quebec, New Brunswick Power.
Some will remember the two-part 2020 APTN TV documentary on NWMO’s search for a “Willing Host Community” to accept all of Canada’s high-level radioactive waste (HLW) in a Deep Geological Repository (DGR), sometimes called a DUD (Deep Underground Dump).
