WHEN – Saturday, April 23rd, 3pm
WHERE – Holmes Foundry (NW corner of Christina & Exmouth)
This will be a S.H.A.M.E. event. Both the Liberal and Conservative Parties support the Asbestos industry.
The Conservative’s finance the Chrysotile Institute, which looks for new and expanded markets for Asbestos in the third world.
The Liberals, including Michael Ignatieff, recently were guests and beneficiaries at an asbestos industry lobbyist fundraiser. That lobbyist was granted $60 million in financing from the Quebec Liberal gov’t just last week to re-open the Jeffrey Asbestos mine.
Asbestos is known to be a major health concern for those who inhale it.
Locally, it has led to thousands of illnesses such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. Many have suffered and died prematurely due to exposure to asbestos. Families continue to suffer the absence of their loved ones.
It is unacceptable that our country should continue the export of this dangerous product to the third world, where workers who come into contact have little or no health protections.
Please join us to make a statement about this issue.
