Life and Death in Asbestos, QC

For a century, Canada was one of the world’s leading exporters of asbestos, most of it mined from the small town of Asbestos, Quebec. But during that time, governments and corporations in Canada did everything they could to hide the fact that asbestos is deadly.

They went to extraordinary lengths — secret organ smuggling, corporate-supervised police torture — to keep the ugly truth from the world.

Today, there’s no longer a town called Asbestos, QC. But more people than ever are dying from what was mined out of the ground there.
