"Nuclear Waste Seeks a Home"

"Picture this: you’ve lived in the same house for more than half a century, and never taken out the garbage."

"Instead, you’ve sorted it carefully into the easy stuff like scrap paper, and the not-so-easy stuff, like the pot of left-over clam chowder you made in 1994.

Then you sealed it all in boxes, labeled them, and locked the stuff in the basement, promising some day to find a better place for it.

Now, picture Canada’s nuclear industry."
