Cancer risk in South Etobicoke

This week, a City of Toronto local air quality study in South Etobicoke found an increased risk of cancer in the community due to air pollution. The major source is transportation emissions from cars & trucks.

In the last few days, TEA's DeTOx Toronto Campaigner spoke to media about this issue and was featured on a CityNews exclusive, 680 News, Humber College Radio, and CBC News.

While it may not be surprising to learn that Highway 427 and the Gardiner Expressway are impacting our health, we now know exactly which chemicals to target for toxics reduction and cancer prevention.

Rather than experience 'toxic shock', TEA wants residents and City Council to spring into action. There are solutions out there!
