Abstract: In 1979 the Canadian Nuclear Association established its Social and Moral Issues Sub-Committee to identify, assess and respond to the social and moral issues relating to the development and utilization of nuclear energy. One of the main activities of the Sub-Committee has been the publication Ethics and Energy Newsletter (3 or 4 times a year). Distribution is both internal, to industry representatives, and external. The Newsletter reports on publications and conference which deal with the social impact of nuclear energy, including some organized or attended by the Sub-Committee staff. It is not stridently pro-nuclear but tries to provide information which will be of use to both proponents and opponents of the nuclear option in their assessment of its risks and benefits.
