Help stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump!
As of August 25, 117 resolutions have been passed across multiple states and provinces calling to block the burial of radioactive wastes on the shore of Lake Huron. You can support the ban by signing the petition, already 68,000 strong. Sign here. And read more about hearings and testimonies and to view the powerful ad in the Toronto Star.
