REPEAL THE BAN ON INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS IN CANADA.

 Forcing us to use CFL bulbs?  Fire hazard, health hazard…. What else with these CFL bulbs? There’s mercury in them. And mercurochrome and merthiolate and thermometres, anything with mercury in them. All banned…  

There’s been incidences where these bulbs have been smoking, throwing out sparks and flames. What if I and/or others hadn't been home when these happened? Would our houses  burned down!?!  

     'Steps to take when a CFL bulb breaks.....Before cleanup, during cleanup and after cleanup'..... Every living thing in my house has to leave the area!?! Open windows and shut off the furnace!?! "Clean" it up (wearing a HAZMAT suit!?!).... AND leave the windows open and the furnace off for several hours!?!

     Be thorough in collecting broken glass and visible powder.”

WHAT IS THIS POWDER!?! SOME OTHER KIND OF TOXIN!?!

      From what I’ve read, these bulbs are not supposed to be enclosed in anything. I have Swedish balls/globes in my kitchen and pole lamps/globe light fixtures and other assorted covered light fixtures in my house.

     Does the government expect me to replace all the fixtures in my house?!

Is the government going to help me pay to have all these fixtures replaced!?!

      From what I’ve read, these bulbs are not supposed to be used outside ‘in the weather’.  What about the light outside my front door? What about the light outside my back door?
