Remove lead pipes

By now you have likely read the news “Hundreds of thousands of Canadians could be consuming tap water laced with high levels of lead leaching from aging infrastructure and plumbing“.

Removing lead pipes from residential buildings and municipal infrastructure is the only way to eliminate health risks in our communities. While some may point to the cost of lead pipe and lead plumbing removal, no action comes with a higher cost to our lives and health care system. There is also the side benefit that replacing lead lines helps our economy and creates jobs. Take action, sign our petition to remove lead pipes from apartment buildings today.
