Fairgoers from across South Bruce recently gathered at the 155th Annual Mildmay-Carrick Fall Fair. The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) was present at this year’s fair informing locals about our ongoing work with the community.


“We had a great turnout for this year’s Mildmay-Carrick Fall Fair,” said South Bruce Councillor Mike Niesen, of an action-packed fair that included 4-H programming, farmer’s Olympics, bouncy castles, a petting zoo, paintball, and the ever-popular demolition derby.


The festivities kicked off with the annual parade that ended at the Mildmay-Carrick Community Centre, which was filled with exhibits and displays such as handmade quilts, locally sourced vegetables, homemade preserves, mouth-watering baked goods, and additional activities for attendees of all ages.


“The weather was fantastic, and we appreciate the NWMO talking the time to talk to residents about Canada’s plan for the safe, long-term management of used nuclear fuel. Their booth was a busy spot throughout the day, and the sunglasses were a hit with the kids,” Mr. Niesen said.


South Bruce is one of several Ontario communities actively participating in the site selection process for a deep geological repository for used nuclear fuel.
