Canada’s nuclear regulator says a leak at a power plant caused 19,000 gallons of demineralized water to be released into Lake

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission says there is no significant risk to public health,
 but do we believe them?

The water was released from the Ontario Power Generation plant in Pickering, Ontario, Monday and the commission was informed around 11:30 p.m. that day. The agency says the leak was caused by pump seal failure.

"The event was a low-level regulatory event with only negligible effect to the environment and no public health implications," Ontario Power said in a release.

Well they would say that wouldn't they! Low level means radiactive water was released and radioactive water gets into the environment and stays there, causing damage.
