Secrecy is Toxic

In 2006, TEA launched the Secrecy is Toxic website as an online engagement tool for the Community Right to Know campaign. The website enabled community members to raise concerns and investigate unidentified sources of toxic chemicals used and released by small businesses.

This initiative helped raise public awareness and advocate for a precedent setting Community Right to Know bylaw to address all sources of pollution in Toronto. In 2008, we succeeded in our campaign with the passage of the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw (2008), the first CRTK bylaw of its kind in Canada!
