Brad Wall Defines Insanity

Wall best program radioactive colonialismOn April 3, the Prince Albert Daily Herald published a Letter to the Editor by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, defending his controversial speech last month in PA, particularly the comment: “You know, the best program for First Nations and Métis people in Saskatchewan is not a program at all – it’s Cameco.”

In his letter, Wall explains that his government is moving away from the “failed approach” of government programs towards “replacing them” with private sector jobs. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” wrote Wall.

Remember the spill of approximately 100 million litres of radioactive liquid at Cameco’s Key Lake uranium mine in 1984? Or the 1.7 million litres of radioactive liquid at Cameco’s Rabbit Lake uranium mine in 1989? Or the years of flooding at Cigar Lake? Spills, accidents and flooding at Cameco’s uranium mines in northern Saskatchewan have been the same thing over and over again for decades. And with more planned mines on the way, yes, it is insanity.
