Might we see Prop 65 style legislation in the province of Ontario? A Toronto Star article suggests it could happen:
Ontarians need to know what toxins are in the products they buy and what toxins neighbourhood businesses are using, NDP Leader Howard Hampton says.
If elected, the NDP would introduce a right-to-know law to make sure families know exactly what toxins and other environmental hazards are in their food, products and neighbourhoods, he announced this morning…
The legislation would require manufactures to disclose to consumers the known, or suspected, toxins in products on information labels.
If manufactures refused to label their products, they wouldn’t be sold in Ontario, Hampton said. Similar legislation in the United States has led to companies removing toxins from products rather than have to label them, he said.
