Should lead hunting ammunition be banned for good? Some Quebec say yes

Some Cree and Inuit groups, along with scientists, health professionals and environmentalists are trying to ban lead ammunition.

Recent studies show that about eight per cent of Cree people have higher levels of lead than what is allowed under Canadian standards.

A ban on lead ammunition for hunting migratory birds has been in place since 1999.

And not everyone thinks it should be expanded.

    The gentle man states that there is no proof that the lead poisoning comes from the ammunition. This is not correct, canadian scientists have studied the isotopic signature of the lead in the blood, and it comes from ammunition and not from paint or other sources.
