Lekivetz, Bob

I teach a number of adult students from European, Eastern and Middle East countries. Some of these students have expressed great fear over the use and handling of nuclear waste. They state that there have been numerous "accidents" that have not been reported or there have been problems with "missing" inventories of used fuel rods. My question is: "In Canada, who is watching the watchers?" What I mean is, "Is the federal government capable of putting politics aside and ensuring the safe storage of nuclear waste?" Are the important decisions going to be made by Canadians or left to the boardrooms of the Utility Companies (likely those who contribute generously to the party in power)?

Have some feedback for us?
