One of the largest companies in Saskatchewan is in the midst of a multi-million dollar tax court battle with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
Cameco has publicly estimated that it could end up owing $800-850 million in Canadian corporate taxes for the years 2008 to 2012, if it loses the case.
Saskatchewan may have missed out on $300 million in corporate tax.

These days, there is no shortage of discussion about energy in Canada, but the conversations and headlines typically focus on controversial projects like pipelines and fracking. Rarely do we talk about success stories that are good for the environment, the economy and energy customers.
Pandora’s Promise is a new film by director Robert Stone which claims to tell "the intensely personal stories of environmentalists and energy experts who have undergone a radical conversion from being fiercely anti to strongly pro-nuclear energy, risking their careers and reputations in the process." Find out for yourself, see the film at the Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon on October 1, 2013, followed by a panel discussion. Visit our Facebook event page.
