Nuclear Energy Special

The disaster in Japan has brought nuclear energy under intense scrutiny, not just over seas, but in Canada as well. Last week we told you about strong opposition to a proposed uranium mine in Nunavut. Today we have a report on the health impacts of radiation and we hear about concerns over the proposed expansion of the Darlington nuclear facility in Ontario. We’ll also take a look at what exactly radiation is, and the different types of radiation a person can encounter.
