Canadians and Chinese are teaming up to poision kids, now

The Canadian Press: NDP issues Christmas toy asbestos warning: "OTTAWA - The NDP is calling on the federal government to shut down Canada's asbestos industry and scrap 'horrifying' regulations that allow the use of the cancer-causing mineral in children's toys and other products. New Democrat MPs Pat Martin and Libby Davies released test results Friday showing that asbestos is present in CSI Fingerprint Examination Kit - a popular new children's toy made in China. 'Asbestos is the greatest industrial killer the world has ever known and you would have to be insane to put asbestos in children's toys,' said Martin."

Is it just that the Chinese are greedy and profit driven or are they actively trying to poison kids? I don't know what the hell is going on with Canada. Every kid who gets mesothelioma from this will be able to sue, at least.
