Dear fellow human rights supporter,
We want to publish this message to Harper as a full page ad in the Ottawa Citizen and in other papers. It will be an act of international solidarity, signed by health defenders and activists around the world.
We are at a critical moment. Harper and Charest support the opening of a huge new asbestos mine in Quebec to export thousands of tonnes of asbestos to the developing world. WE MUST STOP THIS.
Harper is giving your tax dollars and using the Canadian flag to help the asbestos lobby disseminate deadly propaganda in developing countries that asbestos is a wonderful product for them.
Gerry Caplan in the Globe and Mail calls Canada’s export of asbestos a crime against humanity. Help stop this crime being carried out in your name and with your tax money.
Harper never says the word “asbestos”. He gets away with his deadly policy by keeping it hidden. Will you help expose him and make him publicly accountable?
Right now, every Conservative MP, except two (Donna Cadman, BC, and Pat Davidson, Ont.) oppose the Canadian Cancer Society and support the asbestos lobby. We are determined to make them change their indefensible position by exposing them and making them accountable in their own ridings.
Human rights activists in the developing world have asked Canadians to show solidarity with them and to stop Canada’s export of deadly asbestos. Thank you for showing solidarity.
With hope and determination,
Kathleen for RightOnCanada.ca
