This article reports on the increasing efforts in Canada to fight the creation of weapons of mass destruction by North Korea in 2006. Physicians for Global Survival and the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission (WMDC) are two of the many organizations that call for disarmament. WMDC chair Hans Blix encouraged other states to refrain from developing nuclear weapons and from testing. The International Atomic Energy Agency also lamented the testing and breaking de facto of the global moratorium on nuclear explosive testing.
