Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission meeting ~ 280 Slater St. 14th floor 

The CNCS, widely perceived to be a "captured regulator", is the enabler of the abominable nuclear reactor entombment and giant radioactive landfill plans. If anyone would like to watch the CNSC in action with its new President Rumina Velshi presiding, the meeting is open to the public. Discussion of the update report on CNL's "prototype waste facilities" is scheduled to begin at 1:30. No registration needed, just arrive at the hearing room. There is a security check, and a dress code. (no costumes or props allowed)
