Stephen Harper’s killer legacy
Cause of Death:
All asbestos kills. That’s why over 50
countries have banned it, and why
the World Health Organization has
called for an end to its use. That’s why
no industrialized country, including
Canada, uses it. That’s why we spend
millions of dollars removing it from
our schools, hospitals and homes.
But Canada still exports asbestos to
developing countries. Stephen Harper
is the only national political leader who
still supports the export of asbestos.
Prime Minister Harper, stop
exporting asbestos disease to
the developing world.
