One day before the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Doug interviews Tamara Lorincz of Voice of Women for Peace on this tragic event and the need for Canada to sign the Treaty for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons.

Canadian Hiroshima survivor Setsuko Thurlow, was a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 for her work on this Treaty. Sadly, our Prime Minister would not meet with her, nor has he responded to her recent open letter. Tamara and Doug discuss Setsuko's letter, and the need for Canada to support nuclear abolition and sign on to the Treaty.
75 years ago Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atomic bomb used on a city. An estimated 140,000 people were killed instantly and many more died in the following weeks and years from their injuries and the radiation. Three days later, Nagasaki was also destroyed, killing an estimated 70,000 people.

Since then, the danger of nuclear annihilation has grown as the US and 8 other countries have created many more bombs that are much more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb. Since the 1950s, there has been a growing movement against nuclear weapons resulting in some limitations to the acquisition and testing of nuclear weapons. However the threat of nuclear war is ever more dangerous.

Two years ago, the UN adopted a treaty to totally prohibit nuclear weapons. This treaty was supported by most countries, but was opposed by all nuclear weapon states, except North Korea, and all NATO countries, including Canada.
