Earth Day opportunity to learn more on the Uranium Issue, April 22, 2008.

In Ontario, the Citizen's Coalition Against Mining Uranium, used the occasion of Earth Day, April 22, to take its Citizens Inquiry into the Impacts of the Uranium Cycle to the Rideau Park United Church in Ottawa.

Wolfe Erlichman of the sponsoring coalition explained that "We had been asking the government to hold an inquiry into uranium mining and they failed to respond. ... Fifteen councils from Kingston and Haliburton, through to Ottawa, passed resolutions supporting a moratorium on uranium exploration and mining and a public inquiry into the mining act; many thousands of people have written letters and dozens of organizations have made appeals. In the absence of action by the government, we are holding this Inquiry and have invited the Premier and his Ministers to attend to hear what people have to contribute."
