Mr. Speaker, the government is actually doing the opposite.
The minister's officials right now are working to have the global system of classification and labelling exclude dangerous workplace chemicals. This, plus the knee-capping of the national office of WHMIS, are an absolute disgrace and an affront to all workers in this country. Why would the government want to compromise workplace safety?
Will the government follow the European Union, adopt the entire list of hazardous materials and rescind its cuts?
