TOXIC LABELLING PROMISES NEED ACTION NOW!
The federal government is backtracking on their election promise to label hazardous ingredients in cosmetics, upholstered furniture, and cleaning products by Spring 2022. They have recently announced that they plan to drop most of their plans to require hazardous ingredient disclosure for consumer products.
It seems they are doing this because the consumer products industry wants to keep their hazardous ingredients hidden from you. If industry gets their way, Canadians will not see any action to disclose toxic ingredients before the next election.
It is now more important than ever that Bill S-5, the CEPA reform bill currently being considered by the Senate includes a legislated commitment to require labelling of hazardous ingredients.
Remind Minister Guilbeault, Minister Duclos and Prime Minister Trudeau of the promise they made, and that we want to see action now. We are tired of waiting.
