First Nations leaders say they have not been properly consulted about the prospect of a nuclear waste disposal site being established northwest of Ottawa near a prominent nuclear research centre.

Environmental groups also say the controversy over the site near Chalk River, Ont., illustrates the fact that the federal government lacks suitable policies to regulate the handling of nuclear waste.
