Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) Project for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has requested additional information from Ontario Power Generation following its technical review of the Response to the request by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change. The technical review included a comment period to receive the views of the public, Indigenous groups, and expert federal departments and ran from January 18 to March 6, 2017.
KINCARDINE, ONT. - A moment of reckoning has come for Canada’s nuclear industry and millions of people who rely on the power source to keep their lights on.
For over 40 years, nuclear reactors in three provinces have pulsed with energy created by powerful fission reactions and it’s created a complex problem: what do you do with radioactive waste that stays lethal for 100,000 years?
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is the company responsible for managing waste produced by Ontario’s three nuclear plants – Darlington, Pickering and Bruce.
They say the answer lies in the sleepy community of Kincardine, Ont., where the world’s largest operating nuclear plant, Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, is located.
You will recall that last fall Jody Larson sent us emails regarding Hydro One's power outages as they transferred service from the old poles to the new poles that they were installing. As a result of the installation of the new pole on our property, numerous broken plastic shards were left. My vehicle picked up a nail resulting in my having to replace the tire. In my complaint to Hydro One, I was advised that if I wished to make a claim I could complete the online Customer Claim form with Quelmec Insurance Adjustors, which I did. This past week while at the cottage I found 2 more nails

A message from our Executive Director
Welcome, and thank you for taking the opportunity to read our monthly newsletter. This month’s message comes with mixed emotions. For those of you unaware, Geoff Peach, a founder of the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation passed away recently. Geoff was a strong proponent of coastal environmental preservation and promotion. His ground-breaking work has left a huge footprint on the landscape of Lake Huron. For details about Geoff and to donate to his memorial fund please visit our webpage.
Happy New Year from the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation!I hope you enjoy this month’s edition. It is an educational article describing what happens to your lake during these cold winter months when most of us are enjoying the warmth of our homes.
The Coastal Centre has been busy planning for 2017. Some of the main programs we are planning for are:
As your historian, I am collecting information on dances held at the BB Clubhouse. Please send me any memories of dances you attended there, including the years they occurred and a description of the event, if you have not already done this. Thanks.

The Candlers, who currently reside in Wichita, Kansas, with their 4 ½ month old son Wyatt, will take over the 18-hole golf course on Jan.
Thanks to the many replies and several sign-ons to the draft letter circulated last week offering advice to the Canadian federal minister of the environment on the conduct of the review of the "additional information" Ontario Power Generation was to have provided by the end of 2016 about their proposal to bury nuclear waste beside Lake Huron.
January 3, 2017 - On December 28, 2016, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency received the additional information from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) in response to an information request made by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change on February 18, 2016 regarding the Deep Geologic Repository for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste Project. The additional information is publically available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry Site (the registry) at the following location: http://www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca/050/document-eng.cfm?document=116741.

FOR well over forty years the Summer Resort known as Bruce Beach on Lake Huron’s friendly shore has been the holiday rendezvous for health-seekers, pleasure-seekers and tor those who were just tired. From a very modest beginning the popularity and the population have grown by leaps and bounds. The need of having some sort of historical souvenir which would preserve the happy annals of the Beach had been keenly felt for a long time. It was not, however, until the year 1915 that the meeting of this need took concrete form.
Shortly after the Bruce Beach Historical Society was formed in the Fall of 1981, I was having lunch with a friend. When asked why I had given up curling that year, one of the two or three reasons I mentioned was my interest in publishing history of Bruce Beach, where my family had been spending their summers for more than sixty years. "How fortunate you are to have such roots", replied my friend.
