The Sask Party’s
top idjit Leader, Brad Wall is even worse on the uranium issue than the NDP government. According to Wall, with a Sask Party government in Saskatchewan we’d be looking at giving our tax dollars to the likes of Areva, a very profitable multinational corporation, to build a uranium refinery and to promote value-added opportunities right here in Saskatchewan.
Never mind that uranium is one of the most deadly substances on the planet or that the ethical funds people won’t invest in uranium or that it would lock us more tightly into the military industrial complex or that it is our uranium that was depleted and used to kill other human beings and will continue to create health problems for people for generations to come…

A Saskatchewan Party government would provide incentives to spur research into uranium refining and possible nuclear power production in the province, leader Brad Wall said Wednesday.
Wall told the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce that Saskatchewan should become a world leader not only in mining and exporting uranium, but also in refining and storing it and generating nuclear power.
“If elected, a Saskatchewan Party government will immediately take action to move Saskatchewan into a leadership position in uranium value-added opportunities,” he said.
“I think we need to give the uranium value-added cycle much more provincial attention, both in terms of public policy and provincial resources.”
