    JUST SAY NO TO URANIUM MINING IN OTTAWA/GATINEAU WATERSHED!

    Monday May 26, 2008

    12 Noon – 1pm

    In front of the CBC building on Sparks Street, Ottawa Ontario
    (between Bank and O’Connor)

    The City of Ottawa is downstream from uranium exploration sites in eastern Ontario and West Quebec. If uranium mines are developed, our water may become undrinkable due to contamination from heavy metals and radioactivity.

    The City of Ottawa and 19 nearby municipalities and counties have said “NO” to such destructive operations and petitioned the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec for a moratorium.

    Residents on both sides of the river, Aboriginal People, landowners, environmental and grassroots groups are united in peacefully protecting our lands and waterways.

    Despite this, the Ontario and Quebec governments continue to give mining corporations the right to stake and drill on public and private land. Peaceful protests have brought a heavy-handed response, jailing Robert Lovelace, a retired Algonquin Chief and Queens University Lecturer, for six months and fining him $25,000.

    PLEASE JOIN US IN DEMANDING:

    *

    AN IMMEDIATE MORATORIUM ON URANIUM EXPLORATION AND MINING UNTIL A FULL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT IS COMPLETED AND AN INDEPENDENT HEALTH AND SAFETY STUDY IS PROVIDED TO THE PUBLIC
    *

    AN END TO THE MINING ACT’S OUTDATED ‘FREE ENTRY’ SYSTEM
    *

    SETTLEMENT OF NATIVE LAND CLAIMS (IN EASTERN ONTARIO)

    If your comments about depleted uranium are typical of your knowledge of uranium, you fail uranium Chemistry 101 and any other associated science courses – I expect that you skipped science on the way to Activism 101, or how to complain about everything while knowing practically nothing. Next time, don’t pretend to know uranium because you don’t. I suppose that none of you are willing to step up and acknowledge who you are.
