Saskatchewan’s uranium mining is at the front end of the global nuclear system. Dr. Jim Harding, author of Canada’s Deadly Secret, Saskatchewan Uranium and the Global Nuclear System, will reveal the negative impacts of nuclear mining on Aboriginal rights, human health and environment.
He will profile the effect of free trade and the willingness of corporations and governments to side-step social and environmental issues to ensure Saskatchewan and Canada play a pivotal role in nuclear proliferation.
Dr. Harding presents an alternative vision for a sustainable future that links energy, environment, health, peace and sovereignty.
