In this issue

The content of this issue differs somewhat from the norm of the past year or two in that it has only one technical paper but does have reports on three conferences and one workshop. (See the note "as `Publisher"' on page 1 for background.)

Beginning is our report on the 27th CNS Annual Conference, which was held in Toronto, June 11- 14, 2006, followed by a slightly edited version of the W B. Lewis lecture given at the luncheon on the first day and an account of the 2006 Nuclear Achievement Awards, which were presented at the conference dinner.

The next meeting report is on the very successful and different Women in Nuclear Global 2006 Conference, held in Waterloo, Ontario at the end of May 2006.

Lastly, there is an account of the EIC Climate Change Technology Conference (CCC2006) held in Ottawa, May 10 - 12, 2006, followed by the one technical paper, Nuclear Fission Fuel Can be Considered as Inexhaustible, which is a modified and updated version of one presented at the CCC2006 conference.

Then, the last of the "reports" is a note on a workshop, CWESI 2, held by the Society in April.

A short Profile is provided of the unassuming Kevin Routledge, who has the challenging role of Director of the Bruce refurbishment project.

In reflection on the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster there is a reprint of the summary of the report from the Chernobyl Forum, which provides a partial "closure" on that tragic event.

An expanded General News section reflects the many development in the Canadian nuclear scene over the past few months and CNS News provides a view of the society's activities, including a report on the Annual General Meeting held June 13, 2006.

Lastly, but definitely not least, is the inimitable contribution from Jeremy Whitlock in Endpoint along with an updated Calendar of events.

Happy summer reading.
