Environment Canada

List of quotes attributed to Environment Canada:

"In 1995, European countries proposed an amendment to the Basel Convention to ban rich nations from dumping any toxic waste on less developed countries. Canada is one of four nations blocking the amendment. An Environment Canada spokesperson told us the government opposes the amendment because, "It would impact the trade of materials destined for recycling facilities operating in an environmentally sound manner if they were found in a developing country."
