Some History of Nuclear Waste in Saskatchewan

The current debate around Saskatchewan hosting a nuclear waste dump is not new, we have been here before.  Below are some historical articles of the great nuclear waste debate from the 1990's.


This report introduced the concept of "uranium fuel leasing" which meant uranium could be sold for a premium price with an agreement to have the purchaser send its nuclear waste back to Saskatchewan for burial.  Reports still exist of northern residents being told they have an ethical and moral obligation to "take it back", as if uranium and nuclear waste were the same substance.

This is important history for Saskatchewan citizens to understand.  Please note - these are old newspaper clippings which have been scanned, so not all are of top quality, all are legible.
