The United States and Canada, along with other developed countries, are currently faced with a startling epidemic of asbestos-related disease. Over 10,000 Americans and 1,000 Canadians die every year from asbestos-related diseases such as asbestosis, cancer, and mesothelioma. Yet, still, both the U.S. and Canadian governments allow asbestos to be used in some products and Canada continues to mine and export this deadly carcinogen around the world.
The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) and Canadian Voices of Asbestos Victims (CVAV), in unity with American and Canadian asbestos victims and families, unions, organizations, institutes, medical and occupational experts, and concerned citizens have come together to advocate for the elimination of asbestos-related diseases. The North American Declaration to Eliminate Asbestos-Related Disease unites these voices in a common plea, calling for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama to stop the use of asbestos and develop safer alternatives.
This is your chance to speak out against asbestos and its devastation! By signing the North American Declaration at petition you can make your voice heard and contribute to a future without asbestos-related diseases. Any petition information will remain private and is only used for the sole purpose of this petition.
