Mr. Speaker, 16 communities along the St. Lawrence River are taking action to ban microbeads.
Found in a variety of cosmetics and toothpastes, these plastic microparticles are contaminating the St. Lawrence River. The NDP has shown leadership on the issue by successfully seeking unanimous consent of the House to have microbeads placed on Canada’s list of toxic substances. However, we have heard nothing since then.
What are the Conservatives waiting for before they act on our motion and protect our environment?
