Vancouver Workshop: Local Monitoring of Radioactivity from Fukushima

This workshop (Nov 19) promises to be a unique opportunity for getting answers to lingering questions and concerns about the possible effects of radiation from Fukushima on Metro Vancouver’s water supply.

The initiative for this event comes from one individual named Rudy Pante, who is the water quality chemist responsible for testing contaminant levels in Metro Vancouver’s drinking water.

Rudy Pante is an accredited expert* in radiological monitoring whose professional career has involved international experience at various nuclear power plants. He will deliver this workshop which may include informed and insightful comments on hot topics such as:

Although parts of this workshop will undoubtedly be quite technical, it will also cater to those of us who are bewildered by nuclear isotopes and radiological calculations. Rudy is a wealth of expertise with a strong social conscience. He says: ‘The more questions from attendees that I can answer, the “happier” I will be.’ However, he also adds that his opinions are his own and do not reflect those of Metro Vancouver.
