CELA clients in Renfrew County are urging public support for their petition to the federal Government.
The petition was drafted by Ole Hendrickson of Concerned Citizens of Renfrew County and Area and Deedee Sanderson. It calls on the Government of Canada to halt all environmental assessments for proposed permanent radioactive waste disposal sites until the Environmental Assessment Process has been revised in 2018.
The petition also requests an independent third party review board.
MP David McGuinty has sponsored the petition. Johanna Echlin, Gilles Provost, and Ginette Charbonneau co-signed it.
At least 500 signatures were needed. It now has about 1,100 signatures.
The group wants thousands of signatures to make a huge impact.
Please read the petition here and sign it. You must be a Canadian citizen or resident.
Please send to friends and neighbours.
