Canada's Non-Proliferation "Meltdown"

November 16, 2012

The Toronto Star has published Fellow Paul Meyer's critique of the Canada/India trade deal for nuclear material:

"Article V of this agreement formalized Canada’s turning a blind eye to India’s nuclear weapon programs, by stipulating that co-operation on India’s civilian nuclear program should not affect any nuclear activities developed by either party independent of the agreement. Thus while nuclear material originating in Canada could not be used in India’s military program, that material could supplement the limited Indian supplies of uranium and free up more of it for the manufacture of nuclear weapons."
