SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - Nov. 18, 2016) - The CLC will participate in a news conference at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 21 at the MP Sheri Benson's constituency office to address the need for a comprehensive ban on asbestos. The news conference coincides with the MP's private member's bill An Act to amend the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (prohibition of asbestos), which would prohibit the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale or import of certain toxic substances that cause significant danger to the environment or to human life or health.
The CLC also recently launched two online videos that raise awareness about the danger posed by asbestos and the need for a ban. Speakers at the news conference include Sheri Benson, MP for Saskatoon West, Larry Hubich, SFL President and Jesse Todd, Chair of the Saskatchewan Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization and stepson of Howard Willem (Howard's Law).
