OPG uses Saskatchewan uranium to supply electricity to millions of Ontarians. When NWMO’s Director of Aboriginal Relations Pat Patton was asked at English River First Nation promoting a nuclear waste repository, why, if it’s so safe to store what she had just described as highly radioactive waste, would it be shipped across the country to northern Saskatchewan, she replied, “because the people of Toronto don’t feel safe”.
Nancy Greyeyes of Muskeg Lake Cree Nation who reads the letter started walking April 6th from Saskatoon Sk. She is flanked by cowalkers Geron Paul of English River First Nation, Rueben Maurice of Beauval, Brian Whitstone of Onion Lake First Nation and Sharon Veley of Nipissing First Nation. That morning they had read a letter out in front of the GEHitachi uranium processing plant and met with families who are working to get it shut down.
