Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 24, 1971 THf LETHBRIDOE HERALD 17 Pinup dispute Radiation levels increase worker back on the job I after China nuclear test PORT ALBEBN1, B.C. (CP) Mechanic Joe Larson, who missed five (lays of work be- cause of a dispute over a pin- up, is back on the job today at MacMillan Bloedel's Sproat Lake division on Vancouver Is- land. Mr. Larson was suspended by the company last Thursday and Friday when he refused to re- move the poster of a scantily clad girl from his tool cart and he remained off the joh this week. The pinup has now been re- moved from the cart. May the holidays ring in happiness for you! FROM All THE STAFF WEST 1203 2nd Ave. S. OTTAWA radiation levels rose slightly at several points in Canada in the wake of last November's nu- clear test in China. Health Minister John Munro said in a statement today that the radioactivity was at mini- mum delectable levels and was of no health significance. The Chinese nuclear test took place Nov. 18. The higher radia- tion in the atmosphere was monitored Nov. 24 at Vancouver and Calgary and Nov. 25 at Ed- monton and Regina. The dates, the trajectory traces of air movements in the period and the recording of ra- dioactive fallout in Hong Kong and Japan support the conclu- sion that the Chinese test was responsible. The radiation components were iodine-131, barium-lan- thanum-140 and mthenium-103, all characteristics of nuclear fission. The department said all are short-lived, meaning that the ra- diation strength decays rapidly. The highest leve1 recorded at Regina where it was 0.6 picocuries per cubic metre of air compared with a normal reading of 0.1. All stations reporting an in- crease later recorded a return to normal values. No other Ca- nadian air sampling stations re- ported increases.
