In the early 1990s, the Mescalero Apache, near Alamogordo, New Mexico, put forth a proposal for interim nuclear waste storage.  If I remember correctly, all went smoothly until the NRC actually considered their license proposal.  That is when politics stepped in and the proposal died.

As I recall, some years ago there was a community in Utah (maybe Colorado) that 
ctively wanted a low-level radioactive waste site and actually campaigned for 
t because of the economic benefits it would bring. However,  environmentalists 
nd politicians from elsewhere swooped down on them and convinced them of the 
rror of there ways. I wouldn't be surprised if the same fate awaits the 
elected waste site in Canada .
