India and Canada sign nuke deal

Canada and India signed off on a deal that will see Canadian uranium exported to India as part of a plan to increase trade, in spite of concerns regarding India's nuclear weapons program, reported The Globe and Mail. The deal signed on June 27, had been pending, and was discussed when Mr. Harper visited India last year. India first obtained its nuclear technology from Canada, but a nuclear test in 1974 suggested the Canadian research reactor had been misused to obtain weapons-grade plutonium.
