The Committee for Future Generations says it has signed up even more people who want to see the concept of nuclear waste storage effectively banned in the province.

The group sent out a news release today saying it has collected over ten thousand signatures on its petition calling for the government to pass laws banning nuclear waste storage and transportation in Saskatchewan.

The ten thousand signatures are apparently in addition to five thousand that were presented to Premier Brad Wall in April.

Organizers say they plan to present the latest round of signatures to government when the legislature resumes sitting.
