Canada’s government to introduce new law to ban the sale of ceramic tile
The Canadian government is set to introduce legislation this week to ban sales of ceramic tiles.
The legislation will be the third attempt to ban ceramic tiles in the country since the 2010 Canadian Wheat Board and Wheat Canada disputes over the use of ceramic materials in food processing.
The law would ban sales to restaurants, bars, convenience stores, hotels and other venues where ceramic tiles are used.
The sale of any type of ceramic item is illegal under the legislation.
It comes after a long campaign by the province and the food industry, who argued that ceramic tiles, which are used in most of Canada’s kitchens and bars, were toxic to the environment and were damaging to the health of people and animals.
The ban is being pushed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Canadian Association of Food Inspection Agencies.
The industry argues that ceramic tile has a long history of causing disease, and it has been linked to respiratory issues.
The Canadian Food Institute, which represents more than 20 food manufacturers, says there are no credible studies linking the use by restaurants and other restaurants to the spread of diseases.
The agency says the ban is not designed to restrict use by any individual.
The government argues that the ban will protect the environment, protect food safety and ensure that Canadians are not exposed to potentially harmful contaminants.
In a statement, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said he supports the ban.
The legislation will not impact the availability of fresh or frozen produce, he said.
The government has also ordered that all restaurants, cafes and other food outlets sell fresh food from May 1.
Ritz said the government will consider the impact on the Canadian economy.
The ban would only apply to new restaurants and will not apply to existing restaurants.
The legislation was introduced by the agriculture minister in the House of Commons on Wednesday, and will be discussed at a committee meeting of the Standing Committee on Agriculture.
If the government approves the legislation, the government would likely have to go to the courts to stop the sale, which would be costly.
The new law would apply only to the use or sale of a ceramic tile.
A spokeswoman for the Canadian Wheat Council said the council does not support the ban on ceramic tiles and that the organization has been in discussions with the government.
More to come.
