Macklin Very Pleased With Solution to Port Hope Low Level Radioactive Waste

For Immediate Release

June 19, 2001, NORTHUMBERLAND, ON
Paul Macklin, Member of Parliament for Northumberland, was very pleased that Minister of Natural Resources Ralph Goodale has signed a legal agreement to invest $260 million in cleanup for the low-level radioactive waste in Port Hope, Hope and Clarington. This more than a quarter of a billion dollar, ten year project will create three long term storage facilities, one in each municipality, and will include a $20 million cash transfer to Port Hope and Hope.

“This agreement is vital to the future expansion and vitality of the Port Hope and area economy. A culmination of years of hard work by many dedicated individuals, we should all keep in mind all of the individuals who have worked so hard over the last decades to make this announcement possible”, Mr. Macklin stated. “In particular, I want to offer my thanks to my predecessor, the Honourable Christine Stewart, who worked tirelessly to develop this long-term low-level radioactive waste strategy.”

Mr. Macklin concluded, “This announcement marks the beginning of a new era of prosperity for Port Hope and Hope, as they continue their excellent efforts in creating a historical destination, and diversifying what is already a strong industrial and high-tech base. $260 million is a massive investment in any community, and I look forward to continuing to work with the residents of Port Hope and Hope as the implementation of this strategy progresses.”
