83 civil society organizations, including CELA, have signed a letter addressed to Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and Minister of Natural Resources, Jonathan Wilkinson voicing concerns about the Draft Integrated Strategy for Radioactive Waste Management (ISRW) issued by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO).
Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA) members Theresa McClenaghan (Executive Director and Counsel) and Kerrie Blaise (Northern Services Legal Counsel) present and answer questions regarding environmental justice and why it is relevant.
