Protesters take to the water against Chalk River nuclear disposal site

By CBC News Ottawa, July 28, 2019

People from both sides of the Ottawa River took to the water to protest the construction of a nuclear waste disposal site at the Chalk River power plant.

More than a dozen boats took part in the demonstration to say the federal government should heed their warnings about the potential dangers the dump presents for the health of the water.

The site, which has been described as a "near surface disposal facility," is located less than one kilometre from the Ottawa River.
