OTTAWA — Canada is hoping its support for allowing India to rejoin the world's nuclear trade will help open the door to a lucrative business in reactors and uranium, Trade Minister Stockwell Day says.
Canada inadvertently helped India develop an atomic bomb by giving it reactor technology in the 1950s. But last year it swallowed that bitter history and helped India win an exemption from nuclear non-proliferation rules that had banned it for decades from trading in nuclear technology and uranium.
