Why did the Canadian Goverment pass legislation to ban Asbestos?

Why did the Canadian Goverment pass legislation to ban Asbestos?

       Many people don't know the reason why Canadian goverment has banned Asbestos.the reason is here.     Few in the medical community are surprised because Canada’s past dedication to the mining of chrysotile asbestos and the Canadian government’s track record for permitting its production and use in thousands of products laid the groundwork for exposing citizens to the toxic mineral. The most significant increases occurred in the shipbuilding areas around Vancouver, and in Quebec, home to many of Canada’s early asbestos mines.
About 2.1 of every 100,000 Canadians are diagnosed annually with the aggressive disease. Taking in consideration  that in 1984, 153 Canadian men were diagnosed with mesothelioma throughout all the country’s provinces. By 2003, 344 cases were reported among men, and 78 among women. Total 515 people died  from mesothelioma in 2010.
Therefore,Asbestos exposure became the No. 1 cause of occupational death in Canada. Since 1996, asbestos-related disease has accounted for around a third of workplace deaths.
Because of the disease’s latency period of between 20 and 50 years, medical professionals expect the death rate will not level off for several more years.In result of this states in
 2018, the Canadian government passed the Prohibition of Asbestos and Products Containing Asbestos Regulations, sponsored by Environment and Climate Change Canada and Health Canada. Canada’s asbestos ban was many years in the making, but it still includes exceptions for certain uses of asbestos.
