That BCCPAC request the Minister of Education to issue a Ministerial Order prohibiting asbestos removal in schools except in emergency situations when asbestos cannot be covered, contained, or sealed. Also, such emergency removal must never take place during “in-session time” unless students have been evacuated from the premises and kept off site for several weeks after removal. Prior to re-entering the school, air quality testing using state of the art technology must be performed so as to ascertain the absence of risk to students.
