Canada's Deadly Secret book imageThis show features Making the Links Radio's Don Kossick in conversation with Jim Harding, author of a new book, Canada's Deadly Secret: Saskatchewan Uranium and the Global Nuclear System.

Canada’s Deadly Secret chronicles the struggle over Saskatchewan’s uranium mining, the front end of the global nuclear system. It digs into impacts on Aboriginal rights, environmental health and the effect of free trade, tracing Saskatchewan’s pivotal role in nuclear proliferation and the spread of contamination and cancer. Harding shows that nuclear energy cannot address global warming, nor is there a “peaceful atom.” The book goes inside biased public inquiries; it exposes PR campaigns of half-truths and untruths and the penetration of nuclear propaganda into our schools.

Jim Harding is a retired professor of justice studies at the University of Regina. He is a founding member of the Regina Group for a Non- Nuclear Society and was director of research for Prairie Justice Research at the University of Regina, where he headed up the Uranium Inquiries Project. Jim also acted as consultant to the NFB award-winning film Uranium.
