>Ban Asbestos!	
>We Can Live Without It!!
>
>Asbestos is killing tens of thousands of people every year.  The link
>between asbestos and cancer and to serious respiratory disease has been
>well-established. Yet Canada continues to produce and export asbestos and
>asbestos products.  In fact, the Canadian government has been caught
>interfering in efforts to ban asbestos in several European countries.   
>								
>Guest Speaker, Rory O'Neill, Editor of the British Journal Hazards and the
>Worker's Health International Newsletter will give us details about the
>"Dirty Game" being played by the asbestos industry in Canada.  Following
>our discussion, we will "pay a visit" to the office our local member of
>parliament.					
>	
>Join us in sending a clear message to the Canadian government:
>		
>			T We need safe alternative products.  
>			T We need safe alternative work. 
>			T We need to ban asbestos and save lives!
