Canadian town of Asbestos renamed to Val-des-Sources

The Canadian town of Asbestos will be renamed Val-des-Sources. The change came after tourists’ fears that the town may be poisonous, Asbestos was named after the material found there back in the 1800’s, commonly used in insulation, The U.S. banned asbestos in 1973 but it was not banned in Canada until 2018. The last Canadian asbestos mine closed in 2011.
