I live pretty close to the eastern Great Lakes and rely on them for my water needs.
Even though Michigan's economy is pretty much tanked, the Lakes are still recreational destinations for many folks. There a multitude of wildlife that populate this region.
Toronto is already polluting Michigan with it's garbage.

The last thing we need is the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission sending its nuclear junk to Sweden via the Great Lakes.

Bruce Power, whose 4,700-megawatt power plant 155 miles northwest of Toronto is the largest in North America, says the generators have been welded shut to prevent radioactive leaks. Each is the size of a school bus and weighs about 100 tons. They would be ferried aboard a 387-foot ship.

"We have as much of a stake as anybody to make sure this is done safely," spokesman John Peevers said. "It would not be good business for us to do this if we thought it was risky."

Opponents include environmental groups, an organization representing Great Lakes cities, and American Indian tribes. They say even the remote possibility of an accident that would release radiation is too big a gamble for the lakes, which provide drinking water to some 40 million people.

I got a bad feeling about this.

im not the only one not convinced about the several oil wells being destroyed "accidently"

I dunno, maybe im being a bit paranoid, but i dont think it would be a coincidence if this water was also contaminated.

I am also very concerned about our Great Lakes and the fact that other parts of our country and the world are trying to get their hands on it. Sure you are aware that garbage from Canada is being shipped into Michigan for disposal, when I read that a few years back I couldn't believe it.

Good thread, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
