Nuclear waste to be shipped 2000 km by road

Last year Stephen Harper and Barack Obama agreed to ship liquid waste containing weapons-grade uranium from Chalk River near Ottawa to a site in South Carolina. Gordon Edwards is president of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility. He says it’s the first time material this hazardous has been shipped by road. Gordon Edwards speaks with Redeye host Jane Williams.
