Administrative history

On 9 February 1982 the Nova Scotia government established the Commission of Inquiry on Uranium under the Public Inquiries Act. It became popularly known as the Uranium Inquiry. Robert J. McCleave was named commissioner. The commission held a series of forty-four public meetings throughout Nova Scotia during 1982 to examine public opinion on the mining of uranium in the province. The commission examined all aspects of uranium mining, exploration, processing, storage, waste management, and transportation. The commission submitted its final report on 30 January 1985.
