From CNW Group:
The Senate is being urged to pass the Consumer Product Safety Act before the upcoming holiday gift-giving season and in the interest of the safety and welfare of all Canadians. The proposed Bill C-6: Consumer Product Safety Act, which is still being debated by the Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology, would give the government the ability to issue a timely and mandatory recall once a product is deemed unsafe.
Bill C-6 was unanimously approved in the House of Commons and by the House Standing Committee on Health as a long overdue and crucial piece of legislation. Organizations that would like to see the passage of Bill C-6: Consumer Product Safety Act without delay include:
- Alberta Centre for Injury Control & Research
- Atlantic Collaborative on Injury Prevention
- Canadian Public Health Association
- Canadian Institute of Child Health
- Child Safety Link
- Environmental Defence
- Option consommateurs
- Safe Kids Canada
- Saskatchewan Prevention Institute
