    Mould: Workers concerned about their safety - By RENATO GANDIA, Fort McMurray Today, Canada
    Our main concern is we don’t know what kind of health risk we have and how effective is their removal process,” said Mason, an electrician and member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

    “We haven’t been told any information. In fact we are being left in the dark. We’re not being told the short-term and long-term health risk,” he said.

    But Mason said he has seen PTI crews remove the walls infested with mould and some areas of the camp had been quarantined.

    Still, he said, he wants to see results from the tests to find out what the health risks are.
