Cameco continues to infiltrate our public schools

Posted

This time Bedford Road Collegiate in Saskatoon, to the tune of $585,000 for a program teaching technical skills to students. It seems increasingly corporations like Cameco are taking over funding obligations and curriculum development. Citizens need to be asking the public school board why science programs designed to get students “excited about mathematics and excited about science” are being funded by the nuclear industry and not the public purse. Maybe if Cameco paid its fair share of corporate taxes in the first place, public schools could be properly funded.

Cameco's president and CEO Tim Gitzel competes in building the tallest structure out of spaghetti, tape and string at Bedford Road Collegiate on Wednesday.
