Saskatoon, Prince Albert and LaRonge are most likely on the planned route for the transportation of high-level radioactive waste.  Please send this email to everyone you know in these communities.  They should know what the plans are and what the alternatives are.  

Penny and I did a tour at the end of November that took in P.A., Smeaton, Nipawin, Tisdale and Melfort.  Local media were very interested and published very informative articles following our visit.  I will be in attendance at these meetings and look forward to connecting and re-connecting with old friends!  /Sandra
