Cree walkers have walked more than 850 km in the winter to oppose uranium mining in Quebec as part of the BAPE on uranium issues. The Green Party of Quebec presented a brief against uranium mining and called for a complete ban on all uranium mining in Quebec. https://www.facebook.com/alex.tyrrell.92/posts/1573517419528214?__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARBMg-oppQm31WkfRCuOJWyr0SGXNMgJIVH8q8Asgr4ZDKw4X4j77k6iXPG9Fet_-Bk8CvA0S1TtpXYrwWk1ExDD8hOm24KszsgYILiw4SeXfAhap68yLJsHdoI8c95AP-ZARjPvD1yMJt6nhPQp5OlpFEwHqKaOygjx3zkaecScrVdNeLLgLKx72w6jMnDyFF4BYJkQF4w8GjXU49FZW3EIoberV5NPlV6v0WbKPy8fZ-sY9WNMpohQR0k0VZeEccgIhPgRHnfc785Fo6aECjH2WN8bvxPa&__tn__=-R
