Premier Johnny-Boy, What The Hell Did You Do Now? 58M For Asbestos, but Not For Students Or Social Programs?

Tweet

Well, boys ‘n’ girls,  I honestly thought this whole asbestos cheerleading thing would’ve died a well deserved death by now.  I mean, the last remaining asbestos mine, Lac D’Amiante in Thetford Mines closed down.  Premier Johnny-Boy looked to be delaying offering that 58M$ loan guarantee to the now-closed Jeffrey Mine in Asbestos indefinitely, . . . → Read More: Premier Johnny-Boy, What The Hell Did You Do Now? 58M For Asbestos, but Not For Students Or Social Programs?

Tweet

I was surprised when I read this piece from Jennifer Ditchburn and Andy Blatchford last night. It appears that some  Harpercon backbench MPs are getting a tad uppity and starting to look for their own information regarding the dangers of asbestos on their own. Five abstained from voting on an NDP motion to . . . → Read More: Some Misgivings on the Part of Some Harpercon Backbenchers on the Asbestos Issue?

Looks Like Dr. Kellie Leitch of Simcoe-Grey Made Her Choice a Long Time Ago

Tweet

It appears that hundreds of health professionals are now putting Harpercon MP for Simcoe-Grey, Kellie Leitch on the hot seat in an open letter, basically reminding her of that pesky little hippocratic oath she took when she decided to practise medicine in her previous life, and denounce her own government’s stance on asbestos.

In Solidarity With Michaela Keyserlingk And Jean Charest Also Has Dirty Hands

Ok, for lack of anything original, I’m going to do a variation of what DeBeauxOs did earlier over at Dammit Janet. Boys ‘n’ girls, how do you spell ReformaTory? C-A-N-C-E-R. I do mean cancer in oh so many ways as anything they touch is poison. But today, of course, we’re talking about their . . . → Read More: In Solidarity With Michaela Keyserlingk And Jean Charest Also Has Dirty Hands

Stevie Harper’s Conservatives Show Just How Spiteful They Are As They Go After a Widow Of an Asbestos Victim

Tweet

Yep, no holds barred with this gang of miscreants. That asbestos lobby is just so damned important to them that they won’t let a widow of a man who died of asbestos related mesothelioma get in the way of their agenda.  They’re going after her for the use of their contempt party logo.

I Guess It’s Time To Reinstall The Asbestos In Stevie Harper’s Home Since It’s So Safe And Requires No Warning Labels

Quelle surprise! Looks like Canada will be, once again, refusing to vote to add Chrysotile asbestos to the list of hazardous materials to Annex III of the Rotterdam Convention. Once again, here’s the brief explanation of this list:
