The Voice Mail Game

Having gotten no response from my voice mail in the general mailbox for the Ontario Power Generation (which doesn't surprise me at all...y'know that big glass building on University Avenue in Toronto, across the street from the Ledge? Yeah. that's where I left my voice mail) I phoned back. This is how today's phone calls went:

  • OPG switchboard redirected me to Janice Hudson (the Director of Waste Management for OPG). No answer. Voice mail left.
  • Phoned Bill Murdoch's office to find out who I'm actually supposed to call. Was informed that they will not do my research for me (even though I'm trying to figure out something about the government and he's my elected representative to that government). Was given the wrong number for the Ministry of the Energy and Infrastructure (corrected. I'd said Environment, that's not what I meant).
  • Found the right number for the MOEI and talked to Tom who told me to phone Lynda Cain at OPG (who is in Tiverton...which is where Bruce Power is).
  • Left a voice mail for Lynda Cain.

In the mean time Sierra Club of Canada has gotten back to me with more information about the letter on their Web site. The letter is actually a template that you can send to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission to express your concern over what's happening. The letter is sent to Marc--who I spoke with on the phone yesterday. If you want to send a letter to the CNSC you just need to fill out the form, adjust the template to your needs and click send. Isn't technology nifty? The Sierra Club of Canada has also updated their blog to include a link to the template.

You'll note that the letter from the Sierra Club of Canada addresses the exact same concerns that I had yesterday. The Environmental Assessment from 2005-06 that was conducted on the re-opening of Bruce A does not cover the shipment of the steam generators to an off-site location. Bruce Power said that the steam generators would remain on-site. Bruce Power's letter responding to the Sierra Club of Canada's letter which says they were always committed to recycling takes a slice of a statement out of context.

While I wait for the phone to ring I'll get back to writing my book....because a watched phone never rings and chapters don't write themselves.
