Daily Show Exposes Asbestos Hypocrisy in Quebec Canada

Open-pit Mine Asbestos Quebec
As discussed in the May Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) newsletter, the Daily Show did a segment called "Ored to Death" by Herman Hamilton.  The segment is a tongue-in-cheek segment about the reopening of the mine in Asbestos, Quebec.  That is correct as we have discussed here previously the mine in Asbestos Canada that mines chryosilte asbestos is being reopened as a closed-pit mine versus the open-pit mine it used to be.  The asbestos they will be mining will be shipped to India where according to the Bernard Coulombe, executive director of the Jeffrey mine, the people of India are used to pollution and they know how to use it safely.  After seeing the video of the workers in India using the asbestos, we trying to determine if the bandanas they have in that country are HEPA-filtered.  If you love comedy about serious things you will love this video.

There are still stupid men (Candian,..) who are selling the "death all over the world"

I could never unterstand this way of thinking
