CONCERN ABOUT THE SAFETY OF BRUCE NUCLEAR PLANT

Ziggy Kleinau has a strong interest in the efforts of the Bruce Peninsula Environment Group. According to Ziggy's Press Release, Candu reactors are the largest Canadian Source of tritium. The information goes on to say that tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, is classified as a human carcinogen by the EPA in the USA. There is no safe exposure level to such types of radiation, and conventional water treatment isn't able to remove tritium. Ziggy contents that tritium levels in Lake Huron and Lake Ontario routinely exceed the normal detection level (7Bq/l), and sites Bruce "A" as releasing tritium three times more frequently than average for other nuclear stations. Ziggy hopes you share his concern that the Bruce "A" operating license was recently renewed for two years. If you do contact him at R.R. #4, Lion's Head, N0P 1W0, or contact the following people:
