Show Notes:


Uranium has been mined in Saskatchewan since the 1930s. Provincial premiers from Tommy Douglas to Brad Wall have exploited its use as a raw material for nuclear power and nuclear weapons. Public opposition to uranium development has led the government to use the University of Saskatchewan as a fig leaf. D'Arcy Hande is a retired archivist and environmental activist.
