Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Labrador are protected. Ontario’s a free-for-all!

“The mining and milling of uranium ore produces very large volumes of long-lived, low-level radioactive tailings which have leached into waterways in the vicinity of Elliot Lake, Ontario, thereby posing serious health and environmental problems.” Ontario Royal Commission on Electric Power Planning ‘Porter’ Report

“Radioactive fallout and washout from uranium mining sites is carried for up to 400 kms. resulting in a significant increase of cancer fatalities in a wide area.” Kueppers 1994
