Two new nuclear reactors for NB with no adequate policy on radioactive waste in place

PC leader Blaine Higgs says federal funding to build two new nuclear reactors in New Brunswick is confirmed and will be announced after the election.

Yet there is no federal plan or strategy in place for dealing with the new kinds of radioactive wastes that will be produced by these new reactors.
