  1. This is a great article on the feelings on asbestos in Canada. This poison needs to be stopped, especially since it has been linked to mesothelioma and lung cancer for decades. I work with the website Meso RC – http://www.mesorc.com/ - and I have seen the devastation these disease cause firsthand. It’s good to see people rallying in the fight against this toxic material.
