Health Canada took 6 years to develop its 1984 Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan, after 1978 Soviet nuclear satelite crash in NWT + Three Mile Island, 1979. FNEP modified March 22, 2011.

‘Miniscule’ and ‘negligible’ are words used by Health Canada to describe Japanese nuclear radiation detected by sensors in Canada, without apparently providing real time graphic evidence of such assurances, in fact, without providing real scientific data of any sort to substantiate the claim, at least none that this layman can find immediately.

Health Canada took six years to develop its 1984 Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan (FNEP), in response to a Soviet nuclear satelite crash (Cosmos 954) in the North West Territories in 1978, and the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster of 1979.

Chernobyl, Ukraine and Tokaimura, Japan, scenes of other nuclear disasters, are also cited as having influenced the development of the Canadian FNEP.

If one wonders why Health Canada is not trusted by many on the West Coast these days when it comes to providing reassuring statements with respect to the current nuclear disaster in Japan, they have only to bear in mind the inordinate length of time it took these hapless bureaucrats to develop their so-called ‘Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan.’

The FNDP was just modified the other day, March 22, 2011.
