HALIFAX -- Firefighters responded to a radiation scare aboard a ship at the port of Halifax on Thursday night, but later determined there was no leak of radioactive material.
A city news release says firefighters received a call shortly before 10 p.m. after four steel cylinders fell about six metres from inside a container at one of the city's terminals, landing in a contained area of the ship.
It said the cylinders contained uranium hexafluoride, which is the chemical compound used in the gas centrifuge process to enrich uranium that is then used as reactor fuel or to arm nuclear missiles.

Man if that did happen it would deeply sadden me. I am already seeing the grim affects of the rads over here. There were a few dead seals on the beach at the end of last year, and far fewer baby crabs in the early summer. I live on Vancouver island and have been quite concerned about this since it happened. But thank goodness you all got off ok.

Oh are they ever covering tracts. Radiation well over the levels was detected and reported. This radiation interacts with rain and snow and turns really active chemical that harms your lungs horribly. and it was raining. When this crate carrying fuel for nuclear bombs, smashed to the ground, they were talking about evacuating

Now its just, vague and mysterious, no need for alarm.

If they have endangered anyone, and if numbers come down sick, its time for them to go to jail.

Like I posted in another thread,some poor guy got a pink slip over this for sure. I have no idea why this would be shipped as it was,or what it was headed to the states for,but my god if anybody messes with my waterfront I will be pissed.
