6,100 Federally owned sites contaminated

Thats right. We currently have about 6,100 federally owned sites, Canada wide, that are contaminated with such things as heavy metals, PCBs, fuel oil, mercury, and agent orange.

I am outraged that these sites are not known by the average person. I grew up swimming in the waters surrounding my community without knowing I was taking a dip in heavy, metals, PCB's and fuel oils. And thats just the one site. I have no idea what else I have been unknowingly exposed to.

Let's see how comprehensive Mr. Harpers "Green Plan" really is. I would expect the objective of it would be to clean up these sites. Haven't heard a mention of it yet. Recommend this Post
