It’s been 20 years since the mine in Baie Verte, N.L. stopped producing asbestos. But those who worked in the mine and breathed toxic dust say authorities are ignoring science and are denying them compensation. Click here to watch the short video clip.
WorkSafeBC and the Labour Heritage Centre (a virtual museum on worker and labour issues in BC) are creating a 10 minute video on the asbestos issue including production, health effects to workers, and workplace controls. It will also include clips of interviews with family members of asbestos victims. We’ll provide the link to the video once it’s complete.
Checkout the excellent film that they've just completed about another worker tragedy - “New Video Remembers Bentall IV Tragedy”.
