Poll shows concern via Leader Post

A group opposed to nuclear power generation in Saskatchewan has released a poll showing people are concerned about uranium mining in the province.

The poll was released in advance of an event that features a talk Thursday by Dr. Helen Caldicott, a physician who frequently speaks out against uranium mining and nuclear issues.

Sixty-eight per cent of the 800 provincial residents polled support a moratorium on uranium mining in Saskatchewan “until radioactive mine tailings are contained,” said the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment and HUES3 Campaign Committee, two groups that commissioned the telephone poll from Oraclepoll Research Limited.

The poll, done between Sept. 10 and Sept. 16, asked, “Would you support or oppose a proposal to stop further uranium mining in Saskatchewan until all radioactive mine tailings have been satisfactorily and permanently contained?”

Sixty-eight per cent of respondents agreed, 23 per cent were opposed and nine per cent didn’t know. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 per cent.
