Harrison Slams Uranium Deal With China

Northern Saskatchewan’s Member of Parliament is worried about an agreement on uranium development that Paul Martin recently signed with China.


Jeremy Harrison is particularly concerned with the possibility of Canadian uranium assets falling under the control of the communist country.


Harrison says reports indicate the Chinese government will be involved in the future development of Canadian uranium mines, presumably in northern Saskatchewan.


Harrison also says there is credible evidence that China will be playing an instrumental role in the development of the nuclear weapons programs of the rogue states of Iran and North Korea.


Harrison feels it would be a tragedy if uranium from northern Saskatchewan made its way into the nuclear warheads of “one of the most dangerous nations on the planet”.
