moved for leave to introduce Bill C-299, An Act to prohibit the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in specified products and to amend the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.
Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Halifax for seconding this bill.
I actually introduced this bill in the last Parliament. The government adopted some of the facets of this bill that would prohibit and eliminate the use of bisphenol A in products. As we know, bisphenol A is a chromosome disrupter. It does affect human health, particularly the most vulnerable. This bill would eliminate bisphenol A in all products in Canada.
I want to push the government a little more on the adoption of this principle and look forward to this being adopted by this Parliament.
