Canada’s First Nations were not properly consulted about nuclear waste dump site

Toronto Star 23rd April 2018 ,Canada mishandling nuclear waste plans, Indigenous, environmental groups warn. First Nations leaders say they have not been properly consulted about
the prospect of a nuclear waste disposal site being established northwest
of Ottawa near a prominent nuclear research centre.

Environmental groups also say the controversy over the site near Chalk River, Ont., illustrates
the fact that the federal government lacks suitable policies to regulate
the handling of nuclear waste. Glen Hare, deputy grand chief of the
Anishinabek Nation, says his people were not consulted about the proposed
dump site, which is located less than a kilometre away from the Ottawa
River.
