On March 7, CPA submitted a letter to the Canadian Senate regarding the recent introduction of bill S-5, Strengthening Environmental Protection for a Healthier Canada Act.  The letter urges the government to consider strengthening the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) through the introduction of measures that would allow the government to work with foreign jurisdictions to ensure that products imported into Canada meet the same requirements as those produced domestically, specifically in compliance with the Canadian Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products Regulations. The letter also asks the government to devote the necessary resources to actively enforce the testing and certification of potentially non-compliant imported products before entering Canadian commerce. See CPA Letter and @the edge Background Article. More Info: Kevin Warkentin
