October 7, 2010: Ontario Power Generation and steam generator shipment

Ontario Power Generation is poised to ship de-commissioned steam generators through the Great Lakes system to Sweden. The generators will be melted down and the scrap metal will be sold on the open market. The more radiaactive metal will be shipped back for storage.

On today’s program I talked to Gordon Edwards of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility. This was a follow up interview to one conducted in August. On September 28th two days of hearings were scheduled before the five member Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. Gordon Edwards discusses the hearings in which he also presented. Mr Edwards also mentioned that the organization Great Lakes&St. Lawrence Initiative was an intervener at the hearings.
