Mr. Speaker, my question is for the minister responsible for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
In the 1970s many homeowners insulated their homes with urea formaldehyde foam or UFFI. In the 1980s it was alleged that UFFI caused health problems. After a lengthy court battle no health problems were proven. Although CMHC and other lenders now make no distinction between homes with or without UFFI fear still lingers.
Would the minister consider a public information program to correct the misconception about UFFI?
