Loss of Canada's CANDU Nuclear Reactor Sale to China Should be Celebrated Not Lamented

PEJ News
- Dr. Joan Russow - Global Compliance Research Project - May 13, 2005: Today it is reported that despite Jean Chretien's efforts to sell two new CANDU reactors to China, China has rejected Canada's nuclear technology.

For years Canada has subsidized the CANDU reactor; It is past time to subsidize nuclear civil energy, the millions of dollars put into AECL should be put into environmentally sound renewable energy.

Concluding Statement at 7th NPT Review Conference by Ambassador Paul Meyer Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament and Head of Delegation:

"Four weeks ago, at the beginning of this Review Conference, Secretary General Kofi Annan reminded us of the historical reality and the still present danger of a nuclear weapon explosion. He recalled the great security benefits that the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has bestowed over 35 years, but warned us against complacency in underlining the great stress the Treaty was currently under. I fear that this Review Conference has not risen to the Secretary General?s call."

US Military on the University of Toronto Campus

Science for Peace:
Below is the message that was sent out to University of Toronto Faculty concerning a visit by the U.S. Army to University of Toronto faculty in order to solicit researchers to conduct R&D in areas of interest to the Army. A group of students, community members and professors met on Friday afternoon and concluded that the U.S. Army and their attempt to have research into new methods of killing developed on this campus is incompatible with the goals of this public University. We are asking, therefore, for a large showing of Faculty and Staff at the University of Toronto to voice their opposition to using the "Great Minds" of this public institution to further the agenda of the US Government through the violence of the U.S. Army.

"Canada should not be 'spooked' by that old ghost of being accused of being anti-American. Rather we should act as a good friend who would stop a friend from driving drunk thereby threatening his/her own safety and those around."

US Missile Company Scouts Labrador for Missile Defence Site

CBC.ca
- ST. JOHN'S, NFLD.: An American missile contractor has been secretly scouting locations for a radar installation in Labrador, despite Prime Minister Paul Martin's decision to keep Canada out of the U.S. missile defence shield program. In late February, Martin made it clear that Canada won't be part of Washington's controversial program to shoot down incoming missiles aimed at North America. "We took the decision on ballistic missile defence in terms of where Canada's interests lay," he said.

Liberals Abandoning Lester B. Pearson for George W. Bush, Group Fears

Polaris
(Ottawa): Prime Minister Martin?s long awaited International Policy Statement is raising concerns amongst defence and security experts who support Canada?s traditional role as a supporter of UN peacekeeping missions and
international law. ?The Liberals are using the billions of dollars in increased defence spending to build up a military that is more suited to help the Americans fight their next pre-emptive war than to support UN peacekeeping,? said Steven Staples, a defence analyst with the Polaris Institute which is a public-interest research group based in Ottawa.

Defence Minister Floats Idea of Canada Command

PEJ News:
I sat in a "defence community" conference today where Minister Graham gave an address. During the question period following his 'ho-hum' speech, Minister Graham mentioned that the creation of a "Canada Command" or CANADACOM was in the works. As he briefly explained, CANADACOM would be responsible for bringing together all of the branches of the Canadian Forces - Navy, Army, and Air Force - under one command for the defence of Canada. Does this sound familliar? It might because this is the approach the United States took after 9/11 when they created Northern Command, or NORTHCOM.

Poll: Canada's Defence Relationship with the US

SES:
The SES Research Poll completed last week indicates that Canadians are evenly divided between staying the course, getting closer and being further away from the United States on defence issues. However, from a tactical perspective, the Liberal position plays well against the opposition parties.
