Deadly Asbestos Facts:

  • Asbestos is a human carcinogen and there is no safe level of exposure.
  • Disregarding policies and scientific reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), International Labour Organization (ILO), and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC); Canada continues to export asbestos to the developing world.
  • Canada is the fourth biggest exporter after Russia, Kazakhstan and Brazil.

We urge Prime Minister Harper to stop the mining and exporting deadly asbestos to the developing world.
