U.S. Representative John Moolenaar (Republican-Michigan) has published an op-ed in the Midland Daily News, stressing the importance of protecting the Great Lakes environment, including this passage:
We must also protect the Great Lakes from the dangers of nuclear waste. The Canadian government has proposed using a site on the shores of Lake Huron to store nuclear waste. Lake Huron is a treasure between our two countries and I hope the government of Canada will look for a new location outside of the Great Lakes Basin. I have sent a letter to the Trump administration asking it to work on this issue with Canada and find a more suitable location that will not endanger the Great Lakes ecosystem.
