Asbestos banned in construction, renovations at federal sites

CBC News has learned a federal government department has banned asbestos use in new construction and renovation projects at buildings it operates — the new policy took effect on April 1.

In February, CBC revealed that building products containing the toxic material were still being used in new construction of federal buildings in Canada.

The minister of public services and procurement said Monday the government is now taking steps to end the practice.
