Letter to the Editor: Ontarians’ forgotten assets can help individuals and communities in Huron County
In light of COVID-19, Ontario communities and families are struggling more than ever. Here in Huron County, lots of our neighbours have lost their jobs. Many part-time and temporary workers are facing the impossible question of whether to pay for food or rent, or facing unprecedented personal challenges.
Letter to the Editor: It’s time for the residents of South Bruce to get real
Recently, Protect Our Waterways – No Nuclear Waste (POW) drew attention to a reservoir of water in Florida, near Tampa, that was, and still is, on the verge of breaking through its dam and releasing water contaminated with, potentially, a number of materials, including some that are radioactive. The news was presented as both an indictment of nuclear waste management, and of making South Bruce into a “mining town” by hosting a deep geological repository for Canada’s nuclear materials.
Ontario’s ‘ag-gag’ law imperils consumers
All of us should be concerned that Premier Ford pushed through Bill 156, the Security from Trespass and Protecting Food Safety Act, 2020. The legislation seeks to silence employee whistleblowers and investigative journalists and animal welfare organizations.
Letter to the Editor: Looking for truthful answers
What on Earth are they planning to store in this proposed deep geological repository (DGR) in South Bruce? I have read so many letters claiming all sorts of crazy things….how do I know what is true and what is not? There are many people trying to skew the perceptions of “the plan” in order to scare people and instil doubt in the public to further their own agenda. The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has it all laid out pretty clearly on their website, if you are willing to take a look. In case you do not have time or access, I will give you a brief overview of what “the plan” is in regards to what will be stored in Canada’s DGR.
Letter to the Editor: We're in the money now
Yes, we in South Bruce are in the money now and with every spin of the NWMO wheel comes some new found fortune. Why fundraise, just give the Nuclear Waste Management Organization a ring and you’ll be in the show. But unlike the “Wheel of Fortune” this host plays for keeps.
Reflecting on the one-year anniversary of COVID-19 in Grey Bruce.
We are in the midst of exceptional, once-in-a-lifetime circumstances. It was on March 18 last year Grey Bruce saw the initial cases of COVID-19. Those first few cases were all travel-related. Ten days in, the tenth case for the region became the first attributed to community transmission.
Protect our Waterways - No Nuclear Waste send letter to the Mayor and Council members of South Bruce
On February 5th, 2021, legal counsel acting on behalf of Protect Our Waterways – No Nuclear Waste sent a letter to the Mayor and Council members of South Bruce urging the Municipality to commit to a binding referendum requiring a two-thirds majority in order to confirm a compelling demonstration of willingness by the community of South Bruce to host a Deep Geological Repository (DGR). Further, the letter demanded that the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) be compelled to comply with the Ontario Planning Act and South Bruce Zoning By-laws.
