Anti-nuclear opinions dominate uranium forum in Regina

Anti-nuclear opinions dominate uranium forum in Regina By Angela Hall, Leader-PostJune 5, 2009 REGINA — More than 400 people gathered in Regina to weigh in on the province’s nuclear options, with many in the crowd firmly opposed to the idea of building a reactor………………

During the open microphone portion of the meeting Thursday night, Regina resident Ron Bocking asked those opposed to nuclear power to raise their hand — which prompted most of the crowd to cheer and put up their arm.

“I’m strongly opposed to nuclear energy for three main reasons,” said Bocking, calling it economically unfeasible, dangerous due to the waste that has to be isolated from the environment and unnecessary. “There’s many other forms of energy.”………………………

Others called for a bigger focus on renewable energy options.

“Why isn’t there a public meeting of this size talking about solar and wind?” asked one man.
