Is There Any Limit to Greed and Stupidity? In Canada, the Initial Answer Was “No”.

My girlfriend is Ginette Charbonneau. Ginette has just returned with me from Trujillo, Peru where the Mayor had asked me to command/maximize the disaster response to ‘El Nino’ with minimum resources available.  Ginette, is a nuclear physicist who has asked for my help, as the most experienced Disaster Mitigation/Manager, in the world.

A group of hundreds of  scientists, activists, environmentalists, politicians and SANE people has been formed, to combat a bizarre plan to dump millions of Cubic yards of  human-lethal radioactive waste, next to the Ottawa River and it’s water aquifier.

The craziest part of this bizarre drama is the fact that most of the waste will be from demolishing the radioactive concrete  laboratory building at Chalk River Nuclear Facility. They plan to demolish the radioactive building (because, the buildings are too contaminated to occupy or keep at the facility?).

Before, I rescued people from collapsed buildings; I was a demolition expert. I had my own company, and worked for others; including, the Head Office of the World’s Largest Demo Company-C.W.C. (35 offices around the world.), in Los Angeles. I can tell you; as any other General Superintendent, Estimator or Demolition Contractor that concrete buildings generate a tremendous amount of dust which is minimized by spraying a continuous large volume of water on the site. Bottom Line: it is completely insane to consider demolishing radioactive concrete buildings without expecting: 1) all the workers to die, 2) That the air, water, soil of the surrounding area and the local life forms will become radioactively contaminated. Somebody is not paying attention. Somebody is not gathering required facts/information/details to make a realistic plan of action.

Furthermore, this dump is planned to be a ‘normal’ rubber lined dump, open to the air and environment, for 30 to 50 years. After 30 to 50 years of filling it with radioactive material they plan to cover it with a rubber sheet covered with dirt. This lethal radioactive material will be lethal to humans for MANY thousands of years. The mathematical probability of this contamination is certain.

In the short term like all dumps: off-gassing (You can smell the molecules of toxins in the air a 1/2 mile away), birds, insects and the wind will spread material; however, this is not ‘normal’ garbage. We are talking about radioactive contamination. This human-lethal material will eventually leak  into the Ottawa River and Saint Lawrence River causing the contamination of the water supply for millions of Canadians. After contamination, in the future, expect, The City of Ottawa, to become abandoned. Who will want to live in a radioactively contaminated area?  Think of the property values and touristic desirability of Ottawa becoming a ‘sister city’ to Chernobyl.

I had previously written, to this group and suggested a more practical approach. They had initially responded to this ‘Environmental Nightmare’, as scientists do, with long detailed scientific reports. These reports were thorough, scientifically conclusive but needed  some practical operational ‘punch’ to be effective.

Here is the text of my initial email:

“”As the most experienced expert, in the world, at Disaster Mitigation, I make a suggestion: Start your announcement …plain and simple..with a direct, no-nonsense.. statement. Such as:

” The Canadian Government and some financial interests plan to dump a mountain of radioactive material next to the Ottawa River.
This would create danger, death, and destruction at unprecedented levels, for thousands of years. It must be stopped.

There are solutions.
The material needs to be placed in a seismically safe, underground area; forever away from human contact; preferably, in the Canadian Shield.There it can remain undisturbed for the thousands of years required for the radioactive material to become non-lethal.

The current plan to dump this lethal poison, in the open, like ‘normal’ waste might be profitable and less costly for the people who are responsible for creating this poison; but, it is stupid, reckless and murderous.

Is there any limit to greed, stupidity, selfishness? Apparently not.

This must be stopped….see below for details and scientific evidence.”

I wonder what kind of ‘mind’ would support dumping millions of tons of radioactive waste into the most highly populated area of Canada? Why would they want to do this? There should be a complete and public exposure of the people whose greed/self interest is so great that they would endanger the lives of so many people. It is truly amazing what some people will try to ‘get away with’.

There is a huge swelling of people, from all walks of life, who have become enraged and demand corrections. Canadians are wonderfully good, intelligent, caring and decent people. Yes, there are some ‘rats’, in every country. Nevertheless, in Canada, I have no doubt that self-preservation and sanity  will prevail over greed and stupidity.

This was hand delivered, by me (Doug Copp) to the office of, Mark Eyking MP (Sydney-Victoria) on August 8, 2017. Other related documents were included.

………..Ginette’s (English Version) letter, taking my advice is below:

Reaction to the Submissions (August 4, 2017) of the City of Ottawa and the Medical Officer of Health for the City of Ottawa to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission RE: CNL’s Proposal for a Mega Dump for Radioactive Waste at Chalk River, Ontario

The Canadian Government and some financial interests plan to dump a mountain of radioactive material next to the Ottawa River.
This would create danger, death, and destruction at unprecedented levels, for thousands of years. It must be stopped.

There are solutions.
The material needs to be placed in a seismically safe, underground area; forever away from human contact and rivers; preferably, in the Canadian Shield.
There it can remain undisturbed for the thousands of years required for the radioactive material to become non-lethal.

The current plan to dump radioactive material like ‘normal’ waste might be profitable and less costly for the people who are responsible for creating this radioactive pollution.
Is there any limit to greed and stupidity? Apparently not!

It is not the time to have false diplomacy, to make short term apparent economy and to pretend that measuring the radioactivity is enough to protect the citizens; measuring is not solving the problem!

Using a short term, typical, ‘normal’ dump when the radioactive substances have a life of thousands of years is completely irrational!

And it will leak in the river and will inevitably contaminate the air and the marine life. Would you dare to drink that water and to eat fish from that river? Would you take the risk to affect the chromosomes of future babies? I sincerely and honestly believe that this is wrong! I am not going to take white gloves to tell you what I think! You did a dirty job!
Don’t you see that the objective of the project is to have a place to store the demolition waste material to build new labs in Chalk River; but it does not solve the radioactive waste legacy! An installation for the medium activity radioactive waste is badly needed. It costs a lot of money but there is no other choice. It has to be done properly! Every person having common sense knows that the most dangerous cause of risk must be addressed first!
Apparently, you have not analyze thoroughly the Environmental Impact Statement and not read the comments made by scientists. You did not do your job properly!

It is time to take your responsibilities. If you need help to understand the nuclear issues of that project ask specialists. You made a big error and you disappointed a lot of people. Have the decency to correct your mistakes with honesty and better knowledge! Otherwise the consequences will be terrible for you and us.

I swear on the head of my children and grand-children that I will not accept that you act in such an irresponsible manner without consequences! I am a Canadian citizen and I care for the people of my country.

About amerrescue

Prior to 911, I was the most experienced rescue person, in the world. Permanently disabled from 911, I have changed my life-focus towards preventing bureaucracy and vested financial interests from causing the deaths of 200,000 children per year. I am promoting the belief that the lives of children are more important than American Insurance Company Shareholder profits. International Disaster Reduction Institute Institute of International Disaster January 2010 – Present (3 years 10 months)worldwide The world's most experienced Rescuer/Disaster Mitigation Management Expert , crawling inside of 896 collapsed buildings at 100+ disaster events during war, peace and revolution Plus a lifetime of High Adventure; including, an undercover cop. .At almost 3,000 serious life threatening events and the medical survival from enough toxins to kill 200+ people, I am probably the world's leading survivor, from death. Survival Scientist Linkedin Profile: Summary saving lives, reducing suffering. "You must not only be good. You must be wise and wise enough to know who is good." doug copp Sometimes it is NOT enough to do good things ..you must be strong enough to endure the attack...that will follow; especially if you are trying to place children's lives ahead of USA Insurance Company Profits...crawling inside of 896 collapsed buildings helped to give me the courage that it takes; especially, considering that I have been sick every single day; since 911. FYI: USA Insurance companies oppose my 'triangle of life' survival method; because, 90% of the children would survive; instead of 98% dead. This translates into//actuarial tables indicate, survivor's seeking compensation for trauma (physical or mental) with a net result of diminished shareholder return. The insurance Company Executives told us: ” We are in the business of maximizing shareholder return..NOT..saving lives.” The USA School Boards have been told by their Insurance Carriers that their policies would be terminated or the premium would become extreme..if the children are allowed to survive, following my method. I tried to learn: I am responsible for 'what I do' and for 'what I do NOT do'. I am responsible for 'MY actions'. I am not responsible for what other people do. I discovered: that people never regret 'doing the right thing'. They only regret 'doing the wrong thing'. A life devoid of 'something worth dying for', is a life, 'not worth living'. Do all the living you can; while you can. 650,000 people died, at the major disasters I worked at..I have seen things that you cannot imagine. For all the persecution, hatred, violence and disgusting behavior that I have endured; in fighting against, evil, greedy bastards who exploited the helpless and preyed upon people..I am glad that I always did 'the right thing'. I always stood up; many times, by myself; but never alone.. If you can't be YOURSELF then who can you be?
