Toxic Nation tested three Ontario political leaders for toxic chemicals in their bodies: Premier Dalton McGuinty, Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory and NDP Leader Howard Hampton.
We tested them for 70 chemicals in total. And, we found 46.
For the first time in Canada, we tested for bisphenol A (a harmful chemical found in hard plastic bottles and the linings of tin cans). As Toxic Nation web site visitors know, Environmental Defence is calling for a ban on bisphenol A.
The news release gives the main highlights of the report. If you’d like all the details, download the report – Toxic Nation at Queen’s Park: a Report on Pollution in Three Ontario Politicians.
