Stopping underground testing

On the merits of the case, Canada should once again take a leading role in favour of stopping underground testing. The very least it should do is to join forces wiith the neutral and non-aligned countries in calling for:

  1. The immediate resumption of the three power negotiations for a comprehensive test ban treaty;

  2. A mutual unilateral or agreed moratorium on testing pending the negotiation of a treaty;

  3. The creation of a working group at the Geneva conference on disarmament to begin discussing the details of a treaty to help three-power negotiations and speeding up the conclusion of a treaty.
