Paid For By Future Now

 

Dear Neighbors,

A Canadian company recently made the shocking, unilateral, and dangerous decision to bury over 7 million cubic feet of nuclear waste less than a mile from the shores of Lake Huron, and directly across the lake from residents of St. Clair, Sanilac and Huron Counties.  Despite the outrage voiced by communities and residents in both Canada and Michigan, Canada's Joint Review Panel recently recommended the plan move forward.

We are asking President Donald Trump to exercise the United States’ rights under the International Boundary Waters Treaty to stop the Canadian government from approving this plan to bury deadly waste on the Lakes Huron, threatening the Great Lakes Bain for generations!

 

Will you stand with us? 

Add your voice to those of thousands of other concerned citizens demanding that President Trump exercise the United States’ international rights to keep 7 million cubic feet of nuclear waste from being buried under the shores of Lake Huron!
