Mr. Speaker, New Democrats have been trying to get lead and phthalates out of children's toys for over a decade.
Yesterday the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development issued another report showing that the government still is not protecting children from dangerous and toxic substances. The report is very disturbing to Canadian parents who have heard the government talk about this for a long time and are very disappointed that it still has not taken action.
Why does the government continue to fail to protect our children? What does it say to parents heading out to buy toys during this holiday season?
