Join Dr. Gordon Edwards at one of three speaking dates in Northwestern Ontario this April. His tour is in response to the NWMO’s proposed deep geological repository (DGR) for nuclear fuel waste. The “Revell Site,” 45 km west of Ignace, is one of two potential sites for this proposed repository, which would hold all of Canada’s nuclear fuel waste – a projected 120,000 tonnes.

A Canadian scientist and nuclear consultant, Dr. Gordon Edwards graduated from the University of Toronto in 1961 with a gold medal in Mathematics and Physics and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. At the University of Chicago he obtained two master’s degrees, one in Mathematics (1962) and one in English Literature (1964). In 1972, he obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Queen’s University.

In 1975 he co-founded the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility (CCNR) and has been its president since 1978. Edwards has worked widely as a consultant on nuclear issues and has been qualified as a nuclear expert by courts in Canada and elsewhere.

One of Dr. Edwards’ many strengths is his ability to communicate with community members on the realities of radioactive risks, including the risks of nuclear waste transportation and burial.
