Tracadie Range sub-surface bombs still a danger: audit

CBC New Brunswick (Canada)
January 31, 2007

The Department of National Defence has agreed to redo its cleanup of a former air force test range in New Brunswick, after a report that found parts of the Tracadie Range are an immediate risk to the public.

The Canadian military first started firing on northern New Brunswick during the Second World War. The target was 18,000 hectares of land on the Acadian Peninsula known as the Tracadie Range.

Now, more than 60 years later, many of those bombs — unexploded explosive ordnance, or UXO as the military calls them — are still just below the surface.
