Whiteshell Laboratories
by Chris Saunders, Whiteshell History Committee
The first of two local history books is now available in print and it’s at the Library.  Whiteshell Laboratories is a history of “the plant,” as it’s known to locals.  It spans the years from the beginning in the 60s, through to the decommissioning project, full of stories from many who had a career with AECL.  Enjoy the photos and the memories!
