Support Asbestos? Tell Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq to Just Say No!

Wed, Dec 16, 2009 E-Bulletins

Dear friends,

Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq is the only health minister in the Western world who supports use of asbestos, even though it remains today the biggest killer of Canadian workers.

Asbestos goes on killing for decades. It’s impossible to use it safely.

Yet we’re exporting asbestos to developing countries where people are unprotected and we’re failing to address the asbestos public health disaster here in Canada.

It’s time Aglukkaq acted like a health minister. Please send your letter, and ask her to support Bill C-399 (a private member’s bill to ban asbestos) and take action on the continuing asbestos crisis here in Canada.

Thank you for speaking up for justice and health,

Kathleen, Peggy, Pauline and Becky for
