Saskatchewan Greens call for transparency and democratic participation re: the Pinehouse “Gag Order”
Regina, Saskatchewan, Dec 20 — The Green Party of Saskatchewan is calling for transparency, consultation and democratic participation regarding the “Gag Order” in the agreement between the community of Pinehouse, and Cameco and Areva. “Why does the municipal government in Pinehouse need to be silenced in advance?” asks Party Leader Victor Lau. “Any agreement involving elected members of a municipal government in Saskatchewan should not include a ‘Gag Order’. It is very suspicious.” Lau says the “Gag Order” needs to be removed and the public should also be fully consulted. “There is no need for such secrecy and silencing unless a plan to store nuclear waste at Pinehouse is a direct result of this ridiculous agreement,” says Lau.
