Highly enriched Uranium Fuel. Driving it right across the border!
By the way if you are a bit concerned about this material coming through a town near you....
To bad for you!
The Canadian government feels no need to bother itself over the concerns of the peons.
Democracy? No way. Fascist Tyranny? Yup!
Let's read the news together...
Weapons-grade uranium is quietly being transported within Canada, and into the United States, in shipments the country's nuclear watchdog wants to keep cloaked in secrecy.
A confidential federal memo obtained through the Access to Information Act says at least one payload of spent, U.S.-origin highly enriched uranium fuel has already been moved stateside under a new Canada-U.S. deal
(at least one load of highly enriched uranium, could be more.)
The shipments stem from the highly publicized agreement signed last year by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama, amid fears that nuclear-bomb-making material could fall into the hands of terrorists.
The above italicized part is nonsense, it is spin to justify what is really going on here. Canada is supplying the means to make more bombs to the US. Plain and Simple. The natural question that follows is where will these bombs be placed? In Canada?
The Canadian stash gradually being shipped from Chalk River, Ont., contains hundreds of kilograms of highly enriched uranium -- large enough to make several Hiroshima-sized nuclear bombs.
But even as the radioactive freight travels toward the U.S. border, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has no plans to hold public hearings or disclose which communities lie along the delivery route.Why is that you ask?
When asked why public hearings aren't necessary for the uranium deliveries, a commission spokeswoman replied by email: they (Public Hearings )
"are not carried out given the robustness of the packages used and due to the security issues related to the transfers of highly enriched uranium."Recall above the spin about this material falling into the hands of "terrorists" Which is bullshit.
We then get a total contradiction on why there is no public hearings or disclosure- everything is so secure.
If everything is so secure, why transport this material to the US?
Clearly there is another agenda at play.
If everything is so secure, why do the lying lips use the "terror" angle?
Because it stops any questioning dead in it's tracks!
Except for my impertinence in questioning all obvious bullshit.
What makes these types of shipments particularly galling is Canada's horn blowing on non-proliferation
" Canada is proactive in its non-proliferation efforts. Through the Proliferation Security Initiative, Canada works cooperatively with other countries to prevent illicit trafficking in nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, their means of delivery, and related materials. The Proliferation Security Initiative supports UN Security Council Resolution 1540, the first ever Security Council Resolution on non-proliferation issues."
These covert shipments sure appear to be "illicit trafficking".
Is that why there is so much secrecy surrounding them?
