Canada's Deadly Secret
Saskatchewan Uranium and the Global Nuclear SystemBook - 2007
A retired professor of environmental and justice studies, Harding is an anti-nuclear activist in Regina. His own life has been so intertwined with the movement in the Canadian plains since the 1950s that his account reads partly as an autobiography. The crux of the issue is the complicity of the provincial government in supplying uranium for the nuclear industry. Many of the chapters have been published as individual articles.
