Quebec Says No to Uranium

MOISIE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 4, 2012) - In 2009, on the North-Shore of Quebec, the population of Sept-Îles, with the help of "Sept-Îles sans uranium", had expressed its opposition against Terre Venture. The population won, and the company abandoned its project.

In 2010, Terra Firma Resources was criticized by the citizens of Baie-des-Chaleurs, in Eastern Quebec. The company pulled its project in early 2012 thanks to pressures from "Stop Uranium Baie-des-Chaleurs".

In Minganie, on Québec's North-Shore, all 8 municipalities along with a first nation have voted resolutions opposing uranium exploration and exploitation. Yet, Uracan Resources intends to stay. The citizens group "Minganie sans uranium" and the local political leaders ask that the resolutions be followed.

The Mistissini Band Council and the Grand Council of the Crees have also voiced their opposition against Strateco's Matoush project.

In Quebec, 320 municipalities (25%) have voted resolutions against uranium. The population protests whenever and wherever a uranium project is announced in Quebec. There is no social acceptability. Citizens groups are forming throughout the province and are working together in demanding a moratorium on uranium in Quebec.

We take advantage of the PDAC's International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange to raise awareness among investors about this reality. There are many other resources aside from radioactive minerals in Québec. We thank you for respecting the population of Québec in making your investments.
