Citizen's Inquiry on the Impacts of the Uranium Cycle

The Citizen's Inquiry is a project of the Community Coalition Against Mining Uranium (CCAMU). It originated as a response to the proposed exploration for and development of a uranium mine north of Sharbot Lake and upriver of Ottawa. The local First Nation communities have taken action to stop the drilling on their ancestral lands.

Presentations can include written; electronic; audio and video formats; poems, plays, skits, and songs. Presentations will be limited to 10 minutes and will be documented.
