Great Lakes

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has approved a shipment of 16 scrapped power generators with radioactive contents across three of the Great Lakes.
  
The panel announced its decision Friday, turning aside objections from environmentalists and some local officials in the region who said the lakes would be contaminated if there were an accidental spill.

Bruce Power Inc. plans to send the spent generators to a recycling plant in Sweden aboard a 387-foot cargo vessel.
