Safe storage of radioactive materials is of paramount concern. However, are above ground, attack proof, re-inforced concrete storage facilities the best method for dealing with such waste storage, or are there other alternatives that are of the same or better capability?

The dismantling of the Pickering NS must be done very carefully in order to ensure a safe environment for all. There is the added concern of the workers and their employment at the plant. While on balance there may be an offset due to workers required to dismantle the plant, there are still job losses, as, for example, an accountant cannot be instantly transferred to a construction worker. To that end, what is the Ontario Clean Air Alliance’s position on the future of the current workforce at the PNG in light of OCAA’s desire to immediately dismantle the plant?
