Marois takes ethical stand on asbestos

Montreal Gazette, Letters, September 11, 2012
Re: “PQ expected to live up to promise to end asbestos production” (Gazette, Sept. 6)

Bravo to Premier-designate Pauline Marois for taking the moral and ethical stand in declaring that her party will not proceed with the asbestos mine opening project.

People all over the world will applaud this decision (not to export cancer) and Canadians know that this action reflects our values.

By when can we expect an official declaration from her government that the “loan” of $58 million has been cancelled or invested otherwise?
