Mesothelioma Resources:

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lung caused by exposure to asbestos. Due to the long latency period of this disease, people who worked in environments containing asbestos during 1940-1970 are now being diagnosed with mesothelioma (https://www.mesotheliomahelp.org/mesothelioma/prognosis/). For more information about mesothelioma treatment, please visit the Mesothelioma & Asbestos Awareness Centre.

Project Labour Agreements FAQ:

During the 2016 provincial election campaign, both Brian Pallister, PC Manitoba leader and Merit Manitoba (a non-unionized contractor's association) characterized project labour agreements (PLA) as "forced unionization". Manitoba Building Trades have provided an FAQ with answers to many of the questions the public has on this topic.
