Thank you Monica,

I just finished watching the show.
As usual, a terrific propaganda piece by CBC's Suzuki outfit.
Looking forward to your comments.

Best regards,

Subject: [ RadSafe ] CBC program titled Port Hope A Question of Power

For the radsafers out there who have access to Canadian Broadcasting,
tomorrow night on CBC at 8:00 pm The Nature of Things is doing a special on
"Port Hope: A Question of Power".  The trailer on the CBC website states
(link provided below):


	"port hope: a question of power

	Port Hope has all the hallmarks of an ideal small Ontario town. But
it also has a big problem: thousands of tonnes 	of radioactive waste.

	For seven decades the community has been struggling with a serious
environmental hazard discovered 30 years ago in 	the heart of their
community. And now the industry that created the problem wants to introduce
a new potential risk 	in town: the proposed production of an enriched
uranium fuel, destined for the next generation of Ontario's nuclear

	Port Hope: A Question of Power follows a community for more than a
year through twists and turns as it struggles to 	find answers to
questions concerning the health and safety implications of the proposed
project. Community groups go 	head-to-head with the industry, their own
town council and the federal regulators in a compelling story that comes
to a surprising and dramatic ending.

	At a time when the Canadian nuclear industry and governments are
gearing up to expand energy production for the 		growing needs of the
21st century, Port Hope: A Question of Power offers important insights and a
compelling story 	through the experience of Port Hope' people. Along
the way, it sheds light on some of the latest science and
controversies concerning the risks of radioactive exposure, radioactive
waste and ramifications for future 	generations.

	Port Hope: A Question of Power is directed and produced by Sheila
Petzold and Michael Fuller. It is produced by 	Telewerx Productions in
association with CBC Television. Executive producer for THE NATURE OF THINGS
WITH DAVID 	SUZUKI is Michael Allder."

I am expecting the show to focus on the historic low level radioactive waste
in the community as well as the proposed SEU project that was recently
cancelled by Cameco (which is the surprising and dramatic ending referred to
above. Sorry to ruin the ending for anyone who plans on watching)
