As Canada's nuclear regulator, we are compelled to ensure that your
readers understand the facts based on sound science and not the
fictitious biases of a few.
Concerned readers should know that Port Hope residents are as healthy
as the rest of the Canadian population. This has been demonstrated by
13 epidemiological, peer-reviewed studies conducted over several
decades by reputable and independent bodies.
The CNSC recently published a synthesis report that was presented
during open houses held in the community (
Findings were compared with 40 international epidemiological studies
on similar populations, and the conclusion was clear: the health of
Port Hope residents is no different than that of other Canadians.
The CNSC provides strict regulatory oversight of both uranium
processing and cleanup activities taking place in the community to
ensure there are negligible impacts to the health and safety of
residents and their environment.
I invite your readers to visit nuclearsafety.gc.cato get the facts
about Canada's nuclear sector.
