The Canadian Cancer Society supports community right to know. We believe people have the right to know if they are being exposed to substances that are carcinogens.
Community right to know
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that as community members, workers and consumers, we all have the right:
- to know about the environmental and occupational risks that we are being exposed to
- to make informed decisions affecting our health
That is why we support the principle of community right to know.
We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
