Historic Canadian Asbestos Ban

The Canadian Government has just announced that by 2018, the federal government hopes to ban asbestos in Canada and change rules and regulations about the deadly material, which contaminates tens of thousands homes and buildings across the country and kills thousands every year.

This development is quite significant and a wonderful reward for generations of activists in the Canadian unions and NGO's.
