With our closet neighbours apparent complete acceptance of these products (with a couple of exceptions at the local level) as safe and the apparent use of these products through out their country and the information being made available that they are actually expanding there use of these products instead of cutting the products in light of the concerns. I feel with our countries perspective on our health and the push within the Canadian society towards healthier eating, more natural lifestyles their risk to our society as a whole is beyond acceptable.
We as a society must at the earliest convenience bring this law to pass to protect ourselves as a society from the dangers of these products and the possible risks to ourselves, our children and there futures.
