CALGARY, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - As more toxic toys are recalled, the United
Steelworkers (USW) is calling on politicians to ensure that consumer products
are made safe for our children by making more of them in Canada.
This morning, Steelworkers will be testing childrens' toys for lead at a
home in Calgary with children and parents present. It's part of a
continent-wide effort by the union to get the lead out and highlight the
dangers of deregulated trade.
The home testing event, which will use lead testing kits made available
by the USW, will take place:
