The federal government is asking for comment on an environmental assessment about the storage of low and intermediate level radioactive waste in Ontario.
The assessment of the proposed deep geological repository had concluded that burying the hazardous material near the shore of Lake Huron in an underground bunker is the best way to deal with the waste.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is inviting public input on the assessment until September 1st.
The environment minister will then take those comments into account and deliver a decision on the assessment by December.
