People Learned More About Nuclear Safety Requirements

A meeting hosted by the Creighton Community Liaison Committee last night was attended by representatives of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.  Their Senior Project Officer Julie Mecke explained their role as Canada’s independent nuclear regulator in the process of developing a radioactive waste management facility being proposed by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization and being looked into for the Creighton area.  She says if a sight is chosen the NWMO would have to submit an application to the Commission for the early stages of licencing for probably sighting and construction and their role as CNSC staff would be to conduct a review of that application, there then would be a public hearing and the Commission would make a decision on whether or not to issue a licence but only if it is safe to do so.

             

The Commission answered questions on their research but some of those at the meeting asked the Liaison Committee for more opportunities to get answers to their questions and proof of the safety of the project and the long term safety of the storage facility.
