Asbestos. Canada's Ugly Secret

Asbestos is a mineral that was once widely used in the construction industry. Canada produces about ten percent of the world's supply, but because it can cause severe lung problems, its use in Canada is limited. Instead, most of it is shipped to developing countries. Asbestos sales are helping a dying industry in Canada, but sickening and killing workers in countries like India.
