Here at Niagara Environmental Dynamics, we do not support Harper's double standard on asbestos in the international market.
"Chrysotile asbestos is a hazardous substance under Canadian law. But
the Canadian government won’t support its listing as a hazardous
substance under international law. Chrysotile asbestos, apparently, is
hazardous to Canadians but not to folk overseas."
This does not represent our kind, do-gooder national identity. The Harper government should be ashamed of themselves. Full link to Toronto Star's article can be found here http://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2015/02/27/canada-is-on-the-sidelines-when-it-comes-to-banning-the-asbestos-trade.html
