Maisie Shiell and The Power of One

[ pour la version française ]           [ ENLARGE THE PHOTO ]

Maisie Shiell, a grandmother and activist from Regina, Saskatchewan, has been a tireless crusader for nuclear responsibility for decades. Here she is seen at a Winnipeg conference, with two public relations officers of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, making an emphatic point about High Level Nuclear Waste -- which has to be safely stored for millions of years. Her main focus, however, has been the millions of tons of radioactive sand ("tailings") left over from uranium mining in her native Saskatchewan, which will also remain dangerous for periods of time that dwarf the span of human history.
