Legendary Sudbury NDP MPP Elie Martel worked hard for years to stop preventable harm being caused to persons with environmental sensitivities. But when the NDP got into power in Ontario, they pretended they weren't aware of legally obligating information the federal government had already acted on, ironically thanks in part to pressure from the federal and Ontario NDP.
10 August 2007 - While in opposition, John Manley, MP, helped to forward concerns about preventable harm being caused to persons with environmental sensitivities.
