Beyond Nuclear - Canada - 'Nuclear Labyrinth on the Great Lakes'

The Great Lakes, comprising 20% of the world's surface fresh water, serves as the drinking water supply for 40 million people in the U.S., Canada, and a large number of Native American/First Nations.

Today there are seven major nuclear threats on Lake Erie that historically have had chronic and acute problems that continue to this day. This October 4th - 6th a conference will convene bringing focus on these nuclear threats. Noted scholars, activist practitioners, and impacted community members will engage with dialogue about the immediate threats and potential impacts on the Great Lakes bio-region. Impacted communities will be invited to explore the historical, psychological, economic, political, health, safety, security and environmental ramifications of these nuclear power plants. These are the hidden subsidies that have been excluded from the cost equation of nuclear power.  This conference seeks the inclusion of various area constituencies to dialogue and work toward the alleviation of the nuclear perils now faced by Lake Erie.
