Health Canada will Recognize Bisphenol A as dangerous.

In the wake of Enivronmental Defence's report on BPA in baby bottles that was released in February (and commented on extensively, here too). In our house we've stopped using polycarbonate plastics, and Health Canada seems to be all set to agree with me according to a report in today's Globe and Mail.

This would be quite the ground-breaker. Health Canada is sometimes criticized for failing to take the lead on many health issues, often waiting to see what the FDA and EPA do. In light of the over-politicization of those agencies it is heartening to see Health Canada be so proactive in protecting the health of Canadians.
