OTTAWA – Today, new regulations on the use of asbestos were condemned by NDP MP’s Pat Martin (Winnipeg Centre) and Catherine Bell (Vancouver Island North).

New regulations introduced by the Conservatives specifically cite that: “…a person may advertise, sell, or import an asbestos product… that is used by a child in learning or play.”

“You’d have to be crazy to put asbestos in children’s toys,” said Martin. “The rest of the world is banning asbestos in all its forms and Canada is actively seeking out new markets and applications. It defies reason.”[/quote]
