Canadian Asbestos Mining

Asbestos Warning, LBNL 2009

August 15th, 2011 a member of the Quebec National Assembly decided to give Indian-born Canadian businessman Baljit Singh Chadha more time to find private investors for an underground asbestos mining project in order to qualify for a $58 million gift from the Quebec government.  The international consortium was to have come up with $25 million in order to qualify for this large subsidy from the Quebec government by July 1st.  The deadline was extended to August 15th and now has been re-extended to the 1st of October.  The Canadian Cancer Society says more than 100,000 people die worldwide every year from occupational exposure to asbestos.
