Edition #76 – Part 2: Why is there community resistance to nuclear fuel manufacturing in Peterborough?

Is Peterborough about to become home to the manufacture of nuclear fuel pellets in one of its older residential neighbourhoods?  Citizens Against Radioactive Neighbourhoods (CARN) is a group of volunteers which is organizing community resistance to BWXT’s plans.  Three members of CARN (Corinne Mintz, Jane Scott and Peter Harris) describe their concerns and explain the actions that citizens could take to make their views know to the regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission – the CNSC.  Citizens can submit a written intervention to the CNSC prior to January 27th.  They can also choose to appear before the CNSC to make an oral presentation when the commission comes to Peterborough for a hearing on March 4 & 5th.  All details, including links to the CNSC requirements for writing an intervention, appear on CARN’s website at www.nopellets.ca.
