Re: Submission on Day 2 Public Hearing of Bruce Power Inc. Request for 10 Year Operation Licence Extension and Major Component Replacement (full submission can be read here)
Dear Chair and Members of the Commission,
Thank you for the opportunity to address the above licensing extension request by Bruce Power.
This submission is made on behalf of the Bruce Peninsula Environment Group (BPEG).
BPEG is a not-for-profit organization, founded almost thirty years ago in 1989 and incorporated several years later. BPEG has been holding monthly meetings in the town of Lion's Head, at the Christ Church Anglican Parish Hall. We have been frequent intervenors on these license extension requests. This intervenor had the opportunity to tour the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station several times over the years by invitation. I have viewed the interior of a vault of a reactor (offline), the building with the Irradiated Spent Fuel Pool, the building housing the huge concrete containers for above ground storage of irradiated spent fuel, as well as the huge incinerator which is used to deal with the irradiated plastic suits, mops, and motor oil et cetera. After each tour, I was required to visit the decontamination booth to remove the absorbed radiation to assure no endangerment to the public.

We stand in solidarity with the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) in protesting the continuing varying of Rules of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, to the detriment of public intervention. (full submission here)
