Urge Canada to Strengthen Regulations of Toxic Chemicals!

In an average day you'll breathe in 20,000 litres of air. Air filled with nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, and ozone. And we're exposed to an even greater amount of toxic chemicals through our water and food.

In a new study released by Environmental Defense showed a a cocktail of harmful toxic chemicals detectable in Canadians. The report found even greater concentrations of these poisons in children.

Canada's pollution problems stem from the weak and ineffective regulation of toxic chemicals under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA). Safety testing is not required for most chemicals, and industry is not held accountable for their chemicals.

We must begin to phase-out toxics, and implement pollution prevention measures to keep these poisons out of the environment and our bodies.

Urge Minister of the Environment Rona Ambrose to strengthen the regulation of toxic chemicals in Canada by strengthening CEPA>>
