800 KM Walk Heats Up Nuclear Waste Controversy


Much has happened since the Forum for Truth on Nuclear Waste Storage was held in Beauval June 2nd. Organized in two weeks by the newly-formed Committee for Future Generations, the forum was attended by 200 people, most from ten northern communities. Within a few weeks committee members had organized a second forum, held in Pinehouse July 26th. The next day thirty northerners left Pinehouse to begin a twenty day, 7000 Generations Walk Against Nuclear Waste, which will end up at the Regina Legislature.

Why The Northern Saskatchewan Forum Voted To Ban Nuclear Wastes

When I arrived at Beauval late on June 1st I was astonished by the number of road signs announcing the event.
