Norlock gets House of Commons support for Port Hope

Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock took a major run at nuclear activist Dr. Helen Caldicott in the House of Commons Tuesday.

During Question Period, Norlock called on the House of Commons to denounced the Australian activist after she visited Port Hope, proclaiming residents should move away due to nuclear contamination. She followed this with a speech held in Oshawa where she made a number of claims and promoted her recently published book.

Natural Resources Minister Christian Paradis, who is also a Conservative, responded by denouncing Caldicott’s claims. It would appear this was a bit staged.

This news piece is found on the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers website , one of the sponsors of the Caldicott speech.
