April was another busy month for LHCCC staff, gearing up for the action-packed summer ahead. Just like many of you, we are loving the warmer spring weather and soaking up some sun during our lunch hour walks along the Goderich Beach.

Welcome to April's edition of the LHCCC Newsletter! Spring has “sort of sprung”? Mother nature is trying her best to bring back our summer weather, and I am sure many of you are contemplating your returns to your cottages and planning your summer vacation.
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.
We are still looking for more volunteers for Junior Baseball. Summer is HERE and there are many weeks that still require a volunteer to help out.
The weeks we require volunteers are:
July 13 to 17
July 20 to 24
August 17 to 21
August 24 to 28
August 31 to Sept 3 (extra week this year)
As you can see we have quite a few weeks yet to cover. I have been contacted by folks who were not sure when they would be at the Beach for their holidays but if you can commit to helping out for a week that would be great.
The Bruce Beach Golf Club is well underway for 2015. A group of 12
volunteers under the direction of Brian MacEachern and David Wilson have
built a new shed near the 3rd tee to house the course maintenance equipment
and this replaces the old green shed which had a dirt floor and was barely
standing. We would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and
effort in constructing this fine addition to the Golf Club.
Created, constructed and stocked by Bob Cunningham (109) and Barry McPherson(122), the FIRST Bruce Beach Library opens this weekend. Another “first” for the North! Will “Lower” or “Middle” Bruce Beach follow suit?
Modelled on the Little Free Library program found in many neighbourhoods in Canada and the United States (see, www.littlefreelibrary.org), this Library is located beside the tennis courts at Cameron Grove so that it is accessible to our Junior Baseball players and their fans.
The European Renewable Energy Foundation, a Green body supportive of all forms of renewable energy, has carried out research at Edinburgh University involving a look at years of wind farm performance data from the UK and Denmark. Their conclusion is this:
“Put bluntly, wind turbines onshore and offshore still cost too much and wear out far too quickly to offer the developing world a realistic alternative to coal.” And these guys are Green renewable energy proponents!...
We are still looking for more volunteers for Junior Baseball. Summer is fast approaching and there are many weeks that still require a volunteer to help out. Please contact me at the phone numbers or emails listed below.
First day is on Monday June 29th and we still need somebody for the first week.
They’re steamed by a plan to bury nuclear waste in their big backyards — but mayors governing U.S. and Canadian communities hope this week they can also help fire up action against the hot-weather issue of Great Lakes toxic slime.
There are several cottagers who have not yet paid the fees for this year. The amount you owe is included on an insert in the Bruce Beach Book that was sent to you in the mail. There is a pre-addressed envelope included with the insert in the Year Book. The cheque can be mailed or dropped off at 100 Bruce Beach Rd.
June 3, 2015 — The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is undertaking a public comment period for the last phase of the environmental assessment process for the proposed Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) Project for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste in Ontario.
After a couple of great weekends at Bruce Beach many will be trying to figure out how to spend an extra week at the cottage this summer.
What could be better then spending some extra time with your kids by volunteering to help with Junior Baseball.
The activity takes place from 9.30 am to 10.30 am Monday through Friday every week during July and August. The first day this year will be June 29th.

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.
