In early 2009, discussions also turned to finding a willing host community for high level radioactive waste.
Notes of an Ottawa meeting in February 2010 show then Brockton mayor Charlie Bagnato "felt it would be difficult for municipal politicians to embrace a spring date for the siting process during an election year because of the fear of a negative backlash at the polls."
Mike Smith, mayor of Saugeen Shores and former county warden, said the meetings were simply briefings at Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner Blue
which they passed no motions.
Recent documents show the eight county mayors met 16 times with the Nuclear Waste Management Organization and Ontario Power Generation between 2005 and 2012 to discuss a proposed underground facility for low and mid level waste.
Bagnato did admit he didn't want to be "knocking on doors about high level nuclear waste" during the 2010 election, which he lost anyway.
