Add Breast Cancer to NB Firefighter Cancer Legislation

This petition had 249 supporters

Several other cancers are already recognized by provincial legislation as being linked to firefighting. Manitoba was one of the first provinces to offer such coverage in 2002, and it was followed by almost all others but not New Brunswick.

Firefighters are routinely exposed to toxic fumes and gases released by burning plastics and synthetic materials.

The risk of developing breast cancer is three to five times greater in a female firefighter than in the general population, help us support the female firefighters in NB - contact your MLA and let them know it is no longer acceptable to discriminate against us.
