Workers are Protesting Canadian Export
Union members in Australia and Japan are joining those around the world already protesting against Canadian exports of asbestos. Unionists claim that Canada exports over $100 million worth of asbestos, a known carcinogen, to developing countries every year. This includes areas of Asia hit by the tsunami. Unionists are disgraced that a first-world country would target devastated areas and think that Canada should stop exporting asbestos all together.
