A public meeting is scheduled for today in Owen Sound to discuss Bruce Power's plan to ship radioactive waste on the Great Lakes. The proposal has angered environmentalists and politicians, despite assurances the process is safe. Bruce Power has applied for a licence to use the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River to ship 16 decommissioned steam generators from its plant on Lake Huron to Sweden for recycling. Owen Sound Mayor Ruth Lovell Stanners says she's concerned that an accident could happen even before the generators are on the water. Bruce Power says it filed the application in the spring and hopes to start shipments to Sweden in September.
