Clement did mention en passant that it took Government scientists seven years to arrive at a valid system of classifications for over 2,300 toxic chemicals. No small feat that. So I must conclude that the project was begun under the Liberals, and came to fruition under the Harper Government. So I guess the Liberals did do something about environmental health after all.
The irony in the Tories tough love announcement on regulating toxic chemicals, is that regulations are great but you have to have someone enforce them. And that happens to be one of the cuts the Tories made for efficiency. They cut regulation enforcement staff.
