Canada should not abet erosion of international nuclear restraints

Canadians should be very concerned about nuclear weapons proliferation because our country is one of the main suppliers of uranium, a raw material needed for these weapons, on the world market. Dr. Gordon Edwards of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility describes how our uranium was used in the development of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Now, our uranium could be used to expand and modernize India’s nuclear weapons. According to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, India has 50 to 60 nuclear weapons and “is thought to be increasing (its) stockpiles.”
