Comment: Thanks Dr. Edwards for the article, we are fighting against uranium mining all over the world! Not needed, Not wanted!

MONTREAL, Oct. 29 /CNW Telbec/ -

The Association of employees of Northern Quebec (AENQ-CSQ), affiliated to the Centrale des syndicats du Québec (CSQ), wants to inform the Eeyou Etschee Cree and Nunavik Inuit populations that, following the consultation held with its members, it takes position against the exploration and exploitation of Uranium ore, whether it be in Mistissini or Kangiqsualujjuaq.

This consultation was held during the month of October with all AENQ-CSQ members from Northern Quebec communities, Inuit as well as Cree.

More than 85 % disapprove

This consultation was done following a request from certain of our teacher and support staff members from Mistissini, in solidarity with the "Meilleure Mine" coalition. The results showed that more than 85 % of our members wished that AENQ-CSQ take position against these Uranium mining projects.
