The BAPE (Office for public hearings on the environment) continued its hearings on the issue of Uranium development in Quebec.
Among the speakers were representatives from the Grand Council of the Crees, the Cree Women of Eeyou Istchee, the Coalition Quebec meilleure mine, and Uranium Network.
“After following the first two phases of the BAPE process, the Cree Nation is convinced, now more than ever, of the significant long-term risks that uranium development would bring to our land,” stated Grand Chief Dr. Matthew Coon Come. “We are not prepared to impose such burdens on our future generations.”
Stay tuned for more press releases and information from the participating organizations this week.
