TEA victory! City council votes YES to CRTK By-law

On December 3rd, 2008, Toronto City Council votes for a precedent-setting toxics disclosure policy. With an overwhelming vote of 33-3, Toronto becomes the first city that require businesses - from dry cleaners to funeral homes and auto-body repair shops - to reveal their discharges of 25 priority chemicals.

The Community Right to Know By-law (CRTK) will be phased in over four years starting in 2010.
