Quebec Does the Dirty Deed - Funds Asbestos Production

After years of controversy, the Quebec government has agreed to give $7.5 million dollars to Jeffrey Mine so that they can dig up more asbestos and spread the cancer causing agent throughout the world. This repugnant and unconscionable action is nothing less than immoral

"Reopening the Jeffrey Mine will create 425 full-time jobs in Asbestos," the minister said.  Yes this will definitely a job creation bill, in the saddest way possible. It would also require massive amount of medical teams to treat asbestos victims throughout the world, as Quebec exports this poison worldwide.  

It is time that asbestos was banned worldwide. Yes, the United States should show by example!
