SK Public Asbestos Registry is Live!

This is great news. Saskatchewan has finally rolled out their Public Asbestos Registry. Found in the link below is the Saskatchewan government's website to "report asbestos" anywhere within the province. Of course this doesn't help the rest of us directly, but hopefully some of the powers that be will start to make similar changes to the rest of Canada.
