Update (December 23, 2019):
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has agreed to have two meeting in Davenport to address some of the concerns of Davenport residents.
The first will be a general community information meeting in January for any general questions about BWXT, monitoring of air and soil, the upcoming licensing renewal process, and other relevant issues of concern; this meeting will take place in Davenport on Wednesday, January 22 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at Casa de Madeira (1621 Dupont Street).
The second meeting, the official judicial hearing on licensing renewal, is now scheduled to be held in Davenport, at Casa do Alentejo (1130 Dupont Street) on Monday and Tuesday, March 2 and 3. This meeting was originally scheduled to be held in North York, with teleconferencing options for Davenport residents, but I worked hard to ensure a physical meeting in the riding. I hope all interested residents are able to come, follow the proceedings, and give their input about the facility and the licensing renewal. The time of the hearing will be announced closer to March; stay tuned for more updates.
I’ve heard a lot of concerns recently from Davenport residents regarding the BWXT facility in our riding.
My team and I have been working hard to make sure that there is an information session with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission in Davenport so that all interested Davenport residents can participate.
I’m happy to report that it will be taking place on January 22nd, 2020. There is also a License Renewal hearing taking place in North York in March, with the options of Davenport residents being able to teleconference into the meeting to participate. I am actively working on having the meeting moved to Davenport. Stay tuned for more updates.
