Spring into Action!

In this issue of An Ounce, we urge you to take action on a number of issues!

See the list of actions below. Take action today – don’t delay!

  •  Send Prime Minister Stephen Harper this letter demanding that the Canadian government immediately stop the production, use and export of carcinogenic asbestos. Then send Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff an email to say his recent U-turn on banning export of asbestos is a deadly flip-flop.
  •  Read Sandra Madray’s report, The Toxic Treatment: Harmful Chemicals in Canadian Cosmetics in this issue. Then download and sign Breast Cancer Action Montreal’s petition to federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq to prohibit all known or suspected carcinogens, mutagens and reproductive toxins from use in any cosmetic product sold in Canada within three years
