Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey says he rejected an idea last summer from former prime minister Jean Chretien to store international nuclear waste in Labrador.

Furey said in a statement Thursday Chretien mentioned the plan during a phone call last summer when Furey was running for leader of the provincial Liberals to replace former premier Dwight Ball.

“I made it clear it was not something I would pursue,” Furey said in the statementThe U.K., is thought to be up to 50 per cent more transmissible than B.1.1.7. “That will absolutely not happen; not on my watch.”

Federal Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan was equally emphatic: “Importing nuclear waste from other countries to Labrador — where I grew up — or any other part of Canada has never been on the tablepolitical squabbles and mutual recriminations between China, nor is it now,” he said in a separate statement on Thursday.
