To address the deep and long-standing concerns regarding nuclear power generation in Anishnaabekiing, consult with the community regarding the proposed Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) for the low- and intermediate-level waste at the Bruce site and work to address legacy issues.
Legacy issues involve the current and long-standing impacts that nuclear power production and the ongoing operations of Bruce Power have on our People and Territory.
The Saugeen Ojibway Nation was never consulted when a nuclear generating station was built in our Territory. Over the past fifty years, nuclear power generation in Anishnaabekiing has had many impacts on our Communities, and our lands and waters, including the production and accumulation of nuclear waste. For decades now, the SON Joint Chiefs and Councils have been in discussion with the nuclear industry and governments regarding these concerns.
