Church leaders and their representatives are speaking out to request an open and full discussion on the nuclear projects planned for Saskatchewan.
Dr. Dennis W. Lawson (P.Geo.,P.Eng.), Environmental Mining Specialist, Environment Canada (Retired), gives a talk entitled "Reclaiming the Abandoned Uranium Tailings at Gunnar Mines, Uranium CIty, Saskatchewan" Thursday, 16 April 2009, 7 p.m., Frances Morrison Library, 311-23rd Street East, Saskatoon.
Pamphlets outlining problems with nuclear.
Duncan Hawthorne of Bruce Power is proposing to build two nuclear reactors in Saskatchewan. They would employ 1000 people full time for 60 years and bring $240 million annually to the provincial government. However, we do well to remember the saying, The Devil is in the details!
Taxpayers pay front-end subsidies. We pay again for cost overruns. We pay for other sources of electricity when nuclear projects don't start on time or shut down for costly refurbishing. And then our kids will pay again for costly decommissioning and futuristic nuclear waste management.
